As Dawn has already said the records are on FindMyPast ( and also on ancestry , but I find FindMyPast easier to use in this instance ) but later records are restricted and don't give full information.

There is a tree on ancestry  which  gives the following information :

"Neil Douglas Warren Parkinson b 29 May 1924 India died Sep 2006 Hereford
Zena Alexia Meneaud / Parkinson b 5 Jun 1932 India died 3 Mar 2015 Swansea , Glamorgan"
The tree also gives Zena's father's name as Samuel.

The couple arrived in London on the SS Strathnaver 13 Nov 1955. He was a mining engineer and she a teacher . They were going to an address in Hereford.

Zena Alexia Meneaud 1932 Cuddalore , Madras , father Meneaud. Archive ref  N-2-151 Folio 62

A search of the records 1932 plus or minus 10 years gives several possible siblings born in Cuddalore , but I cannot name them as they may be living. RootsChat has a strict policy of not naming those who may be living until death is established.

Well ! You learn something every day !

David J Cobb and family  are on the 1911 census in Gibraltar.

Use the drop down from Chivasco  to find  the family.

I had no idea this was available.

The ages of Mr and Mrs Cobb appear to be the wrong way round !
This whole entry is crossed through on the manifest but Gladys  Cobb married Winn Sollitt in Gibraltar in 1912 -
Armed Forces Marriages ARM2 page 33 line 17

One child Beryl G M Sollitt born 1912 Strood , Edith F Sollitt 1915 Farnham and male 1920 Farnham. Winn Sollitt and Gladys are in Ilford in 1939.

Is this your William Bonhill ( from the lancs opc website https://www.lan-opc.org.uk/)

Baptism 1 June 1883 St James , New Bury , Farnworth , Lancs
William Thomas Bonehill of Thomas Bonehill and Mary
Abode : Union Workhouse

This appears to be the birth registration
William Thomas Bonehill A_J 1883 Bolton 8c 326

I note that the marriage certificate says Thomas Bonehill was a soldier.
