Genealogy research by Mark Humphrys,
I have spent a great deal of time and money on this research. Research involves travel and many expenses.
Some research "things to do" are not done for years, because I do not have the money to do them.

He was a Liberal. The story is that he was horrified by daughter's Labour job until heard what she was earning.

Have searched [GRO.UK] for her death 1930-31.
(todo) Try death of Alice M. Davis, [GRO.UK], 1st qr 1930, Romford, age 53 (born 1877), vol 4a p.563.
James seems to have died between 1931 and 1935. In [Ilford Directory] he is listed at 31 Wellwood Rd, Seven Kings up to 1931. The 31 Wellwood Rd entry is missing in 1933, and his son is listed there from 1935.
It was thought they might be bur at Seven Kings, but there does not seem to be a graveyard there.
They might be bur at nearby Ilford cemetery.
No Davis found in [Essex FHS survey of St.Mary's cemetery, Ilford, [ICL]] but this is only partial survey of St.Mary's, and also doesn't cover municipal cemetery.
