Hi 90th

Just to Clarify his first name.
It looks like the entry in Terry Hope's book is incorrect. William is not his first name, Wilfred is.

The following is from 1911 Census which was written by his own hand.

Also just to clarify It's the Robert Hope book that has him as William early in the description , before calling him Wilfred at the end of the description .
cheers 90th.
