Electoral registers from 1928 show the family living at 68 Tyndale Mansions, Upper Street, London, N1 and this address is confirmed on the 1939 England and Wales Register that shows him as an Apprentice Draughtsman, living with his father and his sister Ivy May Boggis (1924-1991) who was shown as a Chemist Sundries Finisher.

In 1950 he married Phyllis E. Daniels (1924-2002) in the South Western Essex registration district and electoral registers from 1951 to 1964 show then residing at 56 Gibson Square, London, N1.

He died, aged 53 years, on 28 February 1975 in the Moorgate tube disaster and probate records show that his address at the time was Flat 1, Beaver House, 47-49 Highbury Park, London, N5 1TH. Administration of his estate was granted on 9 May 1975 and his effects totalled £1,445.
