NB from Andy: Although I cannot find a direct link to the Austin Motor Company (the 1911 census shows him as working in the jewellery trade with his father, as a warehouseman) he must be a strong possibility. Given that he won’t be on the next census, I guess we’ll never know, unless we get a copy of his death certificate which will show his occupation.
