A fairly comprehensive coverage in the IGI covering the Browett line. Florence Jane went on to marry Thomas Ashworth and they had at least two children, Thomas H & Reginald, both registered in Cardiff.

Marriages Dec 1916
Ashworth  Thomas  Browett  Lambeth  1d 705   
Browett  Florence J  Ashworth  Lambeth  1d 705

Births Mar 1917
Ashworth  Thomas H  Browett  Cardiff  11a 661   
Births Mar 1919
Ashworth  Reginald  Browett  Cardiff  11a 591

I found nothing further on brothers Reginald or Archibald and brother Henry Waring may have married in 1927, hard to say when there is only an initial for the second name.

Marriages Dec 1927
Browett  Henry W  Wright  Bromley  2a 1356   
Wright  Lilian R  Browett  Bromley  2a 1356
