Ernest Simmonds born in 1884, of Staines, married to Emily Hyde, they had a child Eileen Annie born in 1915 in county Cork Ireland.
He came to Antwerp in 1921 ( with his wife and child) and worked for General Motors as plant, factory or production manager.
Anybody can help me locate him after 1930 perhaps find his death record?  More INof on Eileen Annie woudl be welcomed too ?

By the date of the 1939 register (29 September 1939) Ernest and his family had returned to England. The entry shows the following:

Address: 18 St Clan Road, Salisbury, Wiltshire

1. Simmonds Ernest, date of birth 4 Feb 1884, married, occupation Works Manager

2, Simmonds Emily M., date of birth 25 Feb 1883, married, occupation Unpaid domestic duties

3. Simmonds Eileen A., date of birth 19 Apr 1915, single, occupation Shorthand Typist

4. Wigley Caroline A., date of birth 24 Feb 1877, married, occupation Unpaid domestic duties

Source Citation:

The National Archives; Kew, London, England; 1939 Register; Reference: RG 101/7120H

 I don't think the register is on any free sites, but if you have an Ancestry subscription it is at https://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv=1&dbid=61596&h=40248172&tid=&pid=&usePUB=true&_phsrc=UBH1656&_phstart=successSource

The register does not show relationships, so number 4 above might be related or might just be a lodger.
