Parents: Charles Hawkins
Date of Birth taken from the UK Register of 1939, as well as year of birth fitting with all Marriage and Census records
( I cannot locate Charles's birth/baptism record under any surname at this stage. I suspect that it may be under his Mothers Surname of which I have no idea of who his Mother is at this stage. Perhaps she did not marry his father, as also cannot locate him on any Census regarding the surname of Hawkins or various spellings. Need to consider further research to find his correct birth name, as at May 2017.)
