Thanks for your quick replies, it seems to have raised more questions than answers but a great help.
I think Joshua was born in West Ham 1890.  I'm glad to fine Reginald, thank you.

I have a photo from a locket which would seem to be either Reginald J or Joshua Albert. Is anyone able to identify this photo?  Also I would like to know if anyone knew where they both lived between 1911 and 1922
Thanks, hope someone knows.

sooky, from the info provided earlier by JJ, you have Reginald's death at the age of 25 in 1918 druing WW1. The additional info on one of the links by JJ being:

    Son of Joshua Bright Harrison and Edith Alice Harrison, of 45, Steele Rd., Leytonstone, London.

Given Reginald's age, he looks to have likely been living at home at the start of war maybe. The address for parents in 1918 may help you with further details.

The fact that it names his parents as next of kin indicates he was single at the time of his death.

Potential memorial for him here http://twgpp.org/information.php?id=3168438 at the City Of London Cemetery And Crematorium, Manor Park.

You mention the photo in the locket. Tricky to copy maybe. Hard for people to comment without seeing it. Maybe you can get help with making a copy of it to be able to include here?

There are photos for both Joshua Albert and Reginald on the family trees that LisaRobinson mentioned ealier.

This 10yr old post here on RC carries some census info for the family up to 1901 www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=80934.0

ADDED: From JJ's links, you will see the two for Find A Grave site. Both include the photo for Reginald that is included on some online family trees. This should help you hopefully to establish which of the brothers is the one on the photo on the locket.
