Death, Sep 1937 Lewisham 1d 802
Wheeler, Alice Gertrude
age 46

So, if she was born plain Alice, possible birth
March 1891 Lewisham 1d 1221
Quickenden, Alice
mother Taylor

The marriage -
Dec 1912 Lewisham 1d 2164
Quickenden, Alice G.
Wheeler, Thomas A.

From electoral registers his middle name was Alfred.
Perhaps this death
Dec 1957 Lewisham 5d 135
Wheeler, Thomas Alfred
age 73

Hi
Thanks for the info. I think that in the end, I'll just get the marriage cert and find out his Father's name as it's cheaper than going to Lewisham to look a the reord.
Thanks

I have the Army details of Thomas as well but they reveal very little about him.

Any help would be much appreciated.


Just a thought while you wait for m/c

Did his Army records give an occupation for Thomas?

Just to bear in mind there's this Thomas Alfred Wheeler on the 1901 census but unfortunately
does not give an occupation for Thomas Jnr.  ??? - you could look to see if there's a match on 1911 census

Thomas Alfred Wheeler born c 1882 Camberwell son of Thomas & Emily
1901c RG13; Piece: 419; Folio: 45; Page: 28
1891c RG12; Piece: 415; Folio: 78; Page: 2 - Thomas age 9

His parents marriage

Thomas Edwin Wheeler  21, cellarman f James gunsmith
married Emily Elizabeth Rhoda Boucher 20,  f Frederick carpeneter
24 Dec 1876 Emmanuel Church Camberwell

His army record (Royal Fusiliers, Labour Corps) says he was a Carman, and that he was born Marylebone

So he could be the Thomas Wheeler in Sydenham on the free index to 1911

Could he have lost a few years, age wise? On one page of his army record, it says born in the year 1884, with 1881 crossed through.
In 1901, in Battersea, there's a Thomas A Wheeler, 19, Milkman, born Marylebone. Cousin to Kate Godfrey.
Which may put that chap in Camberwell in 1891, with Kate's parents John and Elizabeth Stanyon (Elizabeth nee Wheeler) - Thomas A Wheeler, Boarder, 9, born Holloway.
Whether he might be the Thomas who married Alice Quickenden is impossible to say.
Alan certainly needs that marriage certificate!

I can't find him on the free index to the 39 Register, he may have just moved from Porthcawe Road?

Many thanks for the help and replies. I will be in London over the Christmas & New Year so I have decided to make a visit to Lewisham to see the Parish Register entry which will solve the problem of who his Father is.

One of the trees on Ancestry may be correct regarding the parentage of Thomas, there again [and it has been known] neither may be correct, My visit will solve the problem [at least for me]
