I am trying to find any information regarding Clifford Adey who was born in Neath in approx 1917 the youngest of eleven children. The only other thing I know is that he died in Rowlands Castle, Hampshire in approx 1981.

Any help would be appreciated

Regards & thanks

It's a long shot, but if Clifford Adey was the youngest of so many children, you would expect his parents to have started having children by 1901.
In 1901, there is only one Adey family, as far as I can tell, living in Neath. Here they are:
10 Castle Street, Neath (RG 13/ 5058/ page 35)
William H ADEY, head, 33, foreman tinworker, Brynmawr, Breconshire
Elzabeth ADEY, wife, 29, Fforestfach, Glamorgan
William H ADEY, son, 11, Pontypool, Monmouthshire
Margaret J ADEY, daughter, 9, Neath
Harry ADEY, son, 5, Neath
Kate ADEY, daughter, 3, Neath
David J ADEY, son, 1, Neath
Catherine PICTON, visitor, married, 24, Neath

Looking in the birth records, there are some more Adeys registered in Neath:
Emily JAS 1902, George JFM 1905, Edwin OND 1907 and Fred OND 1909.
Nothing after that and I can't find Clifford elsewhere.
Maybe they moved?
Anyway, hope this helps.

From the bmd index:
Clifford Adey Neath 11a 1774 Mar 1918 mother's maiden name Rees

from freebmd:
Horatio Adey Jun 1889 Neath 11a 1035
Rees Elizabeth

There is a Horatio Adey and Elizabeth on the 1891 census, the details of his birth tie in with the family Pat found on the 1901
