Trying to find background information on William Henry Evandale Roberts (commonly referred to as Evandale Roberts)

He was born in Barbados in 1887 (although he also has some connection with Trinidad) and, apparently, won a scholarship to study music in Germany in 1911.

He married a German woman and had at least one son. After WW1 he went to England but seems to have returned to mainland Europe, where he had a very successful musical career in jazz.

Thank you.
