Theres a record for a Maurice Baker at the National Archives - http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documentsonline/details-result.asp?Edoc_Id=8631004&queryType=1&resultcount=1 - but will cost £3.50 to download it.

If the date of 28 Aug 1898 is his DOB, then there is a Maurice registered in Croydon (Surrey) in the 3rd qt of 1898 (vol 2A / # 309)

In the 1911 census it shows him living at 56 Bateman Road Chingford, Essex.

Parents are Edward George and Edith Mary - married for 13 years

2 brothers, Leslie and Edward George

2 sisters, Murial Edith and Madge Ena
