His sister was also born in Vancouver in 1914.

His daughter Carol Wendy was born in Willesden in January-March 1944, but her birth was registered after the marriage in 1945 in Willesden.

Entry in Social Security Death Index for William Boxall born on 27 April 1913, Social Security Number 534-44-9555 issued in Washington State, and his death on 12 August 2003 in ZIP Code 93023 Ojai, Ventura, California.

Matthew Savill has an entry in Ancestry Public Member Trees for William J Boxall born on 27 April 1913 in Vancouver, BC, Canada, his residence in Newbury Park, Califonia in 1935 (I am not sure this is correct), census, his marriage to Fanny Elizabeth Ayres in England in 1944 and to Margaret Daphne Ayes in 1962 in Everett, Washington, his residence in Ojai, Califonia in 1992 and death in Ojai, Califonia on 12 August 2003. E Boxall adds his military service in the RAF in WWII, his arrival in Halifax, Canada on a navy vessel in 1946, three children by Elizabeth and two by Margaret (I have my doubts - I believe these were from a previous marriage). Another entry gives the marriage to Margaret as occuring in Everett, Snohomish, Washington, United States.
