The Common Room / Re: Adoption, Hostels and Name Change

British Home Children were sent to various countries even as recently as the 1970s without the express authority of their families.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Home_Children

Also see the sticky thread from Berlin Bob at the top of the Australia Board.

So it may well be that the thought that the child went to Australia is worthwhile following up.

I am in NSW Australia.  In the decades before the internet and the commercialisation of family history,  the search for original records was always a very high priority.   In respect of the deceased, it was often a reasonably simple task of writing to the funeral directors and asking for details as to who paid for the funeral, and where buried/cremated.  Funeral director organisations in NSW often were and still can be family businesses passing down through generations.  Some of these have archival records back into the 1800s.  Some have shared their records to peak family history groups. 

Have you considered compiling your own index/database of funeral directors in that London U.K. locality in that broad timeframe,  and then seek out where any of them have archived their old records, even if E&W statute law may have mandated a short timeframe for retention of records.

Do we have the names of the Sponsors - could it be that the clergy recorded the sponsor in that column?  Oh if only we could read the other entries on that page to see how that column was actually used rather than relying on the actual column heading.

That is better.
I wonder if it has nothing to do with his occupation, but is referring to something else?

Is it the name of the employer/landlord of John Molloy?
