Denzil Henry George Williams (1908-1981) was born in Camberwell South on 30 Aug 1908.
He died on 27th March 1981 at Upton Hospital Slough, and was buried in Great Alne, Warwickshire. He married Stephanie Murgatroyd-Williams (1908-1985) at St Catherines Church, Hatcham on 17th March 1934 - see picture below. His father George Edward Williams is recorded as an Electrician. Her father Arthur Haley Murgatroyd is recorded as an Advertising Agent.
Denzil was always known to me as uncle Billy. He was a van driver for a haulage firm when he married, and an engine fitter during the war. He left home for another woman at the end of WW2 and in later years ran a Sub Post Office.
They had one son Colin Williams (1936-1996) who died aged 59.
In the 1911 census [RG14/2463] at 9 Oxenford St, Dulwich SE there resided:

His parents were George Edward Williams (1881-1949) and Emma Annie Mary Cramp-Williams (1881-1976).
Denzil Williams was my uncle and his son Colin my first cousin.
