Broad family Warwickshire

I am looking for descendants of George (possibly Willoughby George) and Annie Broad (maiden name Rees, and born in Neath) who had four children: Harry, James, Wnifred (possibly Mary Winifrede), and Catharine (my mother)

The family was resident in Western Wolverhampton in the 1911 census.

Apart from my mother, I knew only James as an uncle, who was a commander in the navy during the war and was married to Marjorie. They had no children to the best of my knowledge, and lived in Stowting Common in Kent in the 50s.

I really would like to know if either James or Winifred had descendants and would be very grateful for any information at all.

Lots of possible marriages for a Winifred M BROAD in England.

Looks as though Harry married and had two children.
