The 1911 Census shows that William BURGESS and Elizabeth BURGESS nee DURRANT were living at 11 Aylesford Street S W, parish of St George Hanover Square London.

William BURGESS was 22 b1889, Occupation Hawker and born Westminster London.
Elizabeth BURGESS was 22 b1889, Occupation bottle Washer, Westminster London.
William BURGESS, son 4months, b1911, in Pimlico, London.

Their marriage REGISTRATION is shown as Sep quarter of 1910. Because DURRANT and BURGESS are both fairly common names, I have them in my own tree, it would be advisable to obtain their marriage certificate which will
contain the name and occupations of their Fathers.

I have checked the 1901 census for William BURGESS being born 1889 in Westminster London but unfortunately, the entry for a William born nearest that year was born in Ireland, but I suspect that his Father was also William BURGESS and his Mother Kate.

I have found a DURANT, William and wife Maria with children including an Elizabeth DURANT born 1891 so aged 10. Born Bermondsey London. All living at 18 PReston Buildings, St George the Martyr Southwark, London.

Cannot guarantee that either are your ancestors parents until you confirm Father's names and occupations from the marriage certificate of William and Elizabeth.
