Maurice and Margaret had been married for 28 years. In total they'd had 13 children but 4 died in infancy.

Henry enlisted in 3rd Battalion Royal Berkshire Regimentwhich (a Territorial Regiment) in Jun 1915, but was medically diuscharged in January 1916 due to chronic glaucoma. He was considered no longer physically fit for war service. An operation was recommended but he declined.

I'm pretty sure it was this Henry who died in 1932 at Windsor District, although the GRO gives him as aged 70 when he died.
