There are almost no surviving bishop's transcripts for Middlesex parishes before about 1800, and none at all for St James Clerkenwell before 1807.

You need someone to visit LMA in person and request access to the original parish register, to see if any more can be deciphered at the foot of each relevant page. Sometimes such access is granted and sometimes not. It depends on the physical condition of the register.

I believe it's written Shoomaker.

You're welcome. Unless you're intending to publish it, you probably don't need most of the finer points  :)

You can apply for a copy of his service record, may take up to a year to get it and there will be a charge

RAF service records have recently been digitised. In my experience they are coming through in 3-5 weeks.

Devon / Re: Marriage contract 1769 - help to interpret

They did not have to pay the 200 pounds. Only if for some reason the marriage did not go ahead.

Minor point, but this part of goldie61's otherwise excellent explanation is not quite correct.

The penalty was payable only if it was later found that there was a 'lawful impediment' to the marriage (if, for example, one of the spouses was not free to marry). Whether or not the marriage actually took place was not a matter of ecclesiastical law but was entirely at the discretion of the couple and/or their families. If it was called off for any reason, no penalty would be payable to the church.

Robert Wilmott, esquire, the natural and lawful son of a certain Edward Wilmott, late of the parish of Spondon in the county of Derby, against Edward Wilmott the younger, esquire, and Richard Wilmott, also sons of the same deceased.

Original cemetery records may well be at London Metropolitan Archives.  See their catalogue:

Dates given for Isleworth Cemetery are 1879-1936

According to the catalogue, the LMA records referenced above are mainly diocesan deeds of consecration, etc., not burial records.

However, there are burial records for Isleworth Cemetery 1929-1949 held at the National Archives, in HO 45/23050. See this link for the catalogue entry ...

The records themselves cannot be viewed online, so you would need to visit or have someone go on your behalf.

Have you tried looking for this person in the 1939 Register? If found there, it would considerably narrow your timeframe, which might make things easier.
