Here are all the William Luffs I could find in the National Probate Calendar between 1931 and 1951. Was he one of these?

According to, William Luff was born on May 14, 1850. I believe he died around 1936.

Thanks Marty!
The one in Buckinghamshire from the probate records was born in 1850 so that could well be the correct death date too, but hard to confirm.
