June 1931:



The GRONI website is playing up tonight, but you should be able to access the marriage record (it's pay to view), which will confirm the name and occupation of Fred's father.

Is this the family?

The age for Frederick would be right


Breadbasket you are right, the June 1931 record of marriage to Mary Matilda Murray shows him as 26 year old Frederick Charles Roberts, son of Frederick Charles Roberts, boilermaker.  Here's his birth:

Here's his parent's marriage (widower Frederick Charles Robert's previous wife was Agnes Owens):
