Assuming you are confident about his birth details, if you are struggling you might try looking for possible siblings - or even see if you can trace what happened to his parents.
If you look for his birth on Freebmd, you will see his mother's maiden name is shown. Using this you can see if there are other possible children to the same parents.

Based on your info, this might be his parents' marriage:

Marriages Sep 1931
Stanford Eleanor Q Turner W.Ham 4a 1041
Turner William H Stanford W.Ham 4a 1041

Did you look at Friends reunited?

It's the only place you have any hope of finding anyone who worked with him

It's a touch unrealistic to expect to find anyone on here who knew him....................

Don't you have other threads about this?
