    Couldn't find a candidate in the 1911 until I dropped the Auker... Searching on Percy Claxton, father George, delivered the following:
    George (44) and Elizabeth (43) Claxton resident Kings Lynn, Norfolk with Mildred (13) and Percy (10). Both kids born Snettisham. George was an ostler.

    The address is the same as the street on the service record.

    Anc offers a birth reg for a Percy Claxton-Anker in 1900 in Norfolk and theservice records for Percy Claxton-Auker. He's also in the 1901 as simple Percy Claxton with an older sister, Gladys aged 7 who is presumably the dead child mentioned on their 1911 form.

    Can't find a medal card for him.

    The only Percy Auker of the right age in the 1911 was born Derbyshire.
