    Notes 
    • After his marriage to Florence, William and his family lived at 37 Barnfield Road, Upper Norwood. William was firstly a plumber, an installer of gas engines and generators and then a general electrical installation engineer. Because of this, he escaped being called up to serve in the First World War and in 1916 he was employed as one of the maintenance staff at an Ordnance Factory making shells at Chilwell, Nottingham. The family returned to Upper Norwood after the war.

      In 1918 William opened a motor repair garage at 210 High Street, Merton, together with motor coach and charabanc hiring. He built the first coach largely himself on an old Karrier lorry chassis with solid tyres. The identification plate of this lorry carried the date of manufacture of 19th October 1915, which was the day his son Charles was born. He then built a small coach on an extended chassis of a Model T Ford which could carry 14 people. At this time his baker friend, Charlie Williams, went into partnership with him and William's daughter Gladys ran the ticket office associated with the coach trips.

      Following Florence's death in 1939, William moved to 18 Manor Drive North, New Malden. Long-time friend and adjacent shopkeeper from Merton, Jean Anderton, moved in with him to be his housekeeper. He retired in 1942 but subsequently ran Shaw and Duvall (Coach Company) in Kingston, Surrey from August, 1943/4 onwards, as Duvall was conscripted to serve in WW2.
