Were his parents George & Rose Hannah Bettney? If so, he’s living with his family in 1911 at St John's Terrace Crofton Near Wakefield, Crofton, Yorkshire.

In 1901, the family surname is transcribed as "Betney". They're living at 50, St Johns Terrace, Normanton, Wakefield.

In the 1939 Register, James and Evelyn are residing at 48 Crossley Street, Wakefield. His DoB is recorded as 22 Aug 1899 although the actual image has "27-8-1899" written in pencil. Two children are listed with one person redacted.
