Possible for Thomas:

Baptism at St Giles, Cheadle (Roman Catholic)

Thomas, son of Johannis and Maria Teresa Douglas - born 15 March 1849, baptised 18 March 1849.

This couple are in Cheadle in 1851 that John was also a Carrier

Might be a long shot but....
On the 1851 census for Wolviston, Durham
HO107; Piece: 2384; Folio: 68; Page: 37
there is a Thomas Alcock aged 8 months, grandson born in Staffordshire
at the home of William Bone aged 46
There is a daughter called Jemima Bone aged 21.  I noticed one of Thomas Alcock's children is called Jemima

I don't think this is a long shot. I have seen an Alcock family tree online which includes a Jemima Bone... thank you so much. I'll need to investigate this further.

I noticed that although Jemima has the surname 'Bone' on the 1851 census entry, she did in fact marry a John Alcock in 1949  1849 in Stockton on Tees

It looks like Jemima may have died in 1858

I've found a John Alcock with wife Jemima and family in 1881, but John was a shipwright, and Jemima was born about 1836 in Sunderland, Durham. In the 1851 census Jemima was born about 1830 in Wolviston, Durham.

I've looked for deaths for John Alcock prior to 1874, but none of the ones I found were tailors.

If I ordered the 1849 marriage for John Alcock and Jemima Bone, is it likely to give the occupations?

Yes, it should give you John's occupation, plus probably the occupations of the two fathers.
