I know the family from Robert and Elizabeth onwards but I can't find Robert's parents or siblings. I have spoken to other family members who have not been able to find out about them either.

I'm afraid that giving us the information about Robert and his wife and family isn't a lot of help as you want to know his parents. The only way to be sure is to get his marriage certificate and find father's name and occupation, that will help you find him in 1871 and 1861 and will give first names of both his parents. From that you should be able to find their marriage.

Although it shows two Robert's and two Catherine's. Is it common for using names twice?

Catherine Elizabeth b1885 and
Robert b1883 weren't on the census would this possibly be because of  deaths? And is that why the names were used again?
