Hi,
could you look up these men:
Robert Wilson (1841 Highwood Essex) Railway Labourer at Shorne Kent (1881, 1891 and 1901) But also 1871?
Albert Thomas Wilson (1866 Higham Kent) worked also for the SER (somewhere between 1882 and 1898?).
Thank you for your time.

Suttontrust - what a fine offer. I have someone whose entry into the railways I can pinpoint almost exactly - Tom or Thomas Southern, railway servant, 1901, possibly at Symond's Yat Station in the Forest of Dean, GKS. [1901 census, a railway servant - 1900 marriage a labourer].
Please see what you can do.
Southern or Southan [Hereford , Monmouthshire & Glos], Jenkins, Meredith and Morgan [Monmouthshire and Glos.], Murrill, Damary, Damry, Ray, Lawrence [all Middx. & London], Nethway from Kenn or Yatton. Also Riley and Lyons in South Africa and Riley from St. Helena.

Hi suttontrust

Thanks for the offer - wonder if it goes as late at the 1940's?

My Uncle,  James Bateman [born 1902]worked as a engine driver at Hitchen Herts - he took me one the footplate about 1950 - just after he was invalided out of the railways - it would be nice to have any details you had of him. I think he was on the railways for quite some time.

Cheers

Keith
