Information on Walter Dockree - Camera Maker

I would be grateful if anyone can assist me with details about Walter Dockree - Camera Maker. I understand he was involved with the 'Britisher Reflex Camera'. Any details about his connections with 'Houghtons' and 'Staley, Shew & Co.' Also as a joint patentee with 'Alfred Joseph Denniss'. 

Is anything known about his death which seems to have happen at Tottenham Hotspur Football Ground in 1952?

Not much to add except he was working with Houghtons until around 1910, he then traded under his own name until joining Staley, Shew & Co. in 1915. After a few years he worked with or for Houghton-Butcher. Most of his patents are for reflex cameras. Some of his cameras were sold under retailers brand names. I have his date of birth as 1874.
