Please note - I did not mention Roman Catholics ;D

St Saviours was an Anglo-Catholic church (aka English Catholic).
This was a sect within the Church of England.

So, they were an Anglican Church, but believed in certain elements of a Catholic denomination (such as confession).
They were a maverick section of the Church of England.

Read the links I gave previously, or search for "The Oxford Movement" and "Tractarionism".
Garrad (Suffolk, Essex, Somerset), Crocker (Somerset), Vanstone (Devon, Jersey), Sims (Wiltshire), Bridger (Kent)

The problem is that there are no Catholics in my family.

Following this thread with interest, can I just back up what KG says - the 'Anglo-Catholic' church was and still is a part  and parcel of the Anglican Church. It's what we would call 'High Church'.

An example of an Anglo Catholic Church in London https://www.allsaintsmargaretstreet.org.uk/

They were a maverick section of the Church of England.

My husband was brought up in a very 'High' Anglican Church. I will tell him it was 'maverick' and wait for him to start dancing with rage  ;D  ;D

I was initially trying to find Thomas's father, William Greaves when I came across the baptisms. He seems to have disappeared after 1874 when the youngst son was born and although his mother, Jane Ann, called herself "widow" in 1881, she was in the workhouse as "married" in 1891 and buried in 1897 as "wife of William" I can't find a death for William during this time.
What's William's dob and his last known address?
