Many thanks Suz,  :) you've got all info right, I had wondered if Thomas was married, but as I couldn't find this I decided he was single and therefore only his parents name.

Best Regards

 you are wise to check - although it doesn't always follow that if only parents named there was no marriage
My uncle died in WW2 and only his mother's name was mentioned - yet he had a wife and young son.

Best information I have found comes from local newspapers
