Looking into family tree and info on my great grandad, but have come to a stop.
I have been led to believe he is buried in Claybrooke Parva Cemetery in Leicestershire (there is no gravestone to check) and according to the records there is a John William Bennett buried there 26 Mar 1950 aged 54, but I am not sure if this is him as on his marriage certificate (only named as John) 26 Mar 1927 it says aged 32 so sums do not add up. His father is named as Edward Bennett, but I have no idea where he/they are from but when they married they lived in the Lutterworth area of Leicestershire as that is where my great nan grew up.
I am not sure where to go next and could do with a little help if anyone has ideas it would be much appreciated.

Could this be him? What does the MC give as an occupation for his father? Is his father still living? What is John's occupation?
