someone on ancestry has Gilbert on their family tree. Might be worth contacting them as they have 2 wives and some children attached. Unfortunately they have not added to their tree for over one year so may not be active ; But they will still get the email (if address the same)
He was living with a Joy dell

If you use FreeBMD to find the marriage you will see her maiden name.

Use this to search for the births for Paul and David.

There are 2 births that could correspond to this marriage in 1952 and 1956 but, again, they are in the Essex area.

Use this site again and use the mother's maiden name to find the births:

HiCarolyn,

I listed his birth so we had some idea of dates.

When were David and Paul born? I only see a Devon marriage in 1961, which I assume is to your mother? Where they born before or after this?
