Harry William WILLIAMS born in London about 1895 (Urgent)

just re gathering form sources to see if there are any patterns that leap out i.e. his children's names
the census is given as London, not London, Middlesex - maybe important maybe not - possible it was a "myth" created for Harry, in which case Norwich becomes a possibility.

I am aware of my family members who went "In service" to work in Birmingham and London, again in your case you may have a Forest girl who went to London, became a single parent and her child was "adopted" in the Forest.

The "adoption" may have been from a family member, or more "formally" by a Doctor or Cleric from a bereaved parent or a single mother - I suspect no formal paperwork exists ( based on experience)
