In the 1911 Census Roy’s birthplace is given as Parkgate; Yorkshire and the address is given as 76 Albert Road, Parkgate, Nr Rotherham.

A search of FreeBMD for all Rogers births within the registration district of Rotherham between 1908-1910 threw up this one:

Rodgers, Wroy; Mar Qtr 1910; District Rotherham; Vol 9c page 805

May be worth searching the medal rolls for that spelling.

I don’t know where that spelling of Roy originates, but it may have some religious source and I notice that in 1891 the Rodgers family are all involved with a local Chapel.

Going off the topic of the Navy and you may already have some of this.

Looks like his parents’ marriage was in Worksop (Nottingham/ Derbyshire border) (at least it was the only one that fits)

Rodgers, Wilfred; District Worksop; Sep Qtr 1901; Volume 7B, Page 54

Goodall, Gertrude; District Worksop; Sep Qtr 1901; Volume 7B, Page 54

Likely birth registration for Wilfred

Rodgers Wilfred; Jun Qtr 1876; District: Worksop; Vol 7b page 51

Possible but a less likely birth registration

Rodgers Wilfred Sharp; Sep Qtr 1875; District: Chesterfield; Vol 7b page 664

Note: until 1937 the Worksop Registration District included the parish of Clowne when it was transferred to Chesterfield Registration District.
