The youngest child, Richard Charles Randall, was baptised at Holy Trinity, Leytonstone on 19 Sep 1897 (parents: Henry and Sarah).  He was baptised together with a brother Frederick, whose birth was registered Jun 1895 Poplar.

Richard seems to have moved to the Poplar Training School in Hutton, Essex* after 1901, and died in Enfield in 1972 with a recorded birthdate of 8 June 1897.

*This seems to have been the new location for the training school previously in Forest Gate, according to the article found previously.

I have found William's baptism in 1907 when he was 17. His birth is correctly recorded on the register as 3 August 1890.

Parents listed as Henry and Sarah - does this mean they were both present? I am struggling to read Henry's occupation but think it says artist.

That is very good news that the birthdate on the baptism is a precise match for "your" William, as found in later records.

Regarding the baptism- the recording of his parents' names does not in any way imply that either or both was present at the baptism.  It looks from other records as though they were both alive at this time, but you can't even infer that from a baptism record.

Just found it - I agree with your reading of "artist".
