By putting that 'Marked as Answered' tick, it appears that you want no more information.
Are you still looking, as I have assumed that you are.

There appear to be 2 births in Brighton, the first in 1945 i.e. before that Cornwall marriage. There is also a birth in Surrey S E in 1938.
There is a Moon/Batten marriage in Surrey S E in 1935.
So the Brighton births could belong to the Surrey 1935 marriage.
Someone on here has the 1945 birth, and others have the Surrey SE birth, so you could try to contact them for further information - if just to rule out the births.

This could be Mary B's death - so looks like she stayed in Cornwall, so Brighton births becoming less likely.
Mary Bettine Moon
Birth Date: 16 May 1924
Date of Registration: Apr-May-Jun 1983
Age at Death: 59
Registration district: St Germans
Inferred County: Cornwall
Volume: 21
Page: 0481

and this could be her husband's death
Jack Clark Moon
Birth Date: 14 Jan 1912
Date of Registration: Apr-May-Jun 1982
Age at Death: 70
Registration district: St Germans
Inferred County: Cornwall
Volume: 21
Page: 0486

death certificates for more information?

There is a marriage for an Arthur P in 1950 in Liskeard, showing on free bmd.
The couple are on 192.com up to 2008.
(There are several births, including some in St Germans that could be children)

Unfortunately, if Arthur is known by his middle name, and if that P stands for Peter, then this is his wife's death:
BATTEN On July 23rd 2008 at Burcombe Farm, St. Dominick, Violet Grace aged 79 years. Beloved wife of Peter, loving mother of Andrew, John and Jackie, Richard and Maxine and baby Eric (deceased). Dear granny of Michael, Carina, Rachel and Nicola and loving Mum Batten of Muriel and Ralph. Funeral service at St. Dominick Parish Church on Saturday, August 2nd at 11:00am. The cremation will take place at Glynn Valley Crematorium on Monday, August 4th at 10:30am. Family flowers only, donations in lieu made payable to the Friends of Botchill House, by retiring collection or to C. P. Coombe Funeral Directors, Glenmoor, Moss Side, Callington, PL17 8AS. Tel: (01579) 383349.

BATTEN On July 23rd at Burcombe Farm, St. Dominick, Violet Grace, dearest nan of Robert, Shirley and Mark.

So this would look like Arthur P's death, making the same assumption as to use of middle name:
BATTEN On August 22nd 2009, Peter of Burcombe Farm, St. Dominick. Beloved husband of Violet (deceased) loving father of Andrew, John and Jackie, Richard and Maxine and baby Eric (deceased), dear grandad of Michael, Carina, Rachel and Nicola. Funeral service at Glynn Valley Crematorium on Wednesday September 2nd at 10.30am followed by a service of thanksgiving at St. Dominick Parish Church at 2.30pm. Family flowers only donations in lieu if so desired made payable to either friends of Botchill House or Garner ward, Bodmin Hospital by retiring collection or to C.P. Coombe Funeral Director, Glenmoor, Moss Side, Callington. PL17 8AS. Tel: 01579 383349.

Thank you
Apologies yes I do still want information.
I do have all the info apart from the deaths of Arthur Peter and his wife. Yes I believe he was known by his second name, Peter.
I will look into this further.
