If you do not know exactly when he was born how do you know he has'nt died?

There are a lot of William White's born around that time

Also death records only go up to 2006

If Lena is your mum's sister in law, then we need your mother's details.

A sister in law can be related via your mother's husband or a wife of her brother.
Which one is it?

There are 2 marriages for a William J. Cosker in Southend. The 2nd is to a Sylvia.
I think they are on 192.com for 2002-6.

Dorothy, this is a very unusual surname. I suggest you look for Sylvia p Cosker on 192.com, as I believe she is likely to be his wife - she shows up as living with a William John Cosker.
