Charles Beckett

Hi I wonder if anyone is able to help me.

Im looking for information on the birth a Charles Beckett who died 1972 in Northampton, I know on the 1911 census he was an apprentice bootmaker and lived with Edward Arthur Lowe and Edwards family in st.johns wood London. His birthplace was listed as Berkshire. Im struggling to find him on the 1901 census. I can only find one birth for a Charles Beckett from Abingdon Berkshire but the 1911 census doesn't match up.

I also know he married Fanny E Pilgrim in 1919 and his father is listed as Charles Beckett. I don't know his mothers name or any other information.

My Nan seems to think his name might actually be Leonard Charles Beckett but I still cant find anything.
Apparantly he didn't like to talk about his past and my nan things he may have been illegitimate or adopted perhaps?

Any help is much appreciated, Thank you
