Just for the sake of recording the research, I reckon Sgt William Tyler's parents were William Tyler, general dealer, and Mary Ann Lyons, both born Lambeth circa 1856. They were married at the Emmanuel Church in Lambeth in 1885. William senior is a patient in the Lambeth Infirmary in the 1901 census.

There is a private tree on Ancestry that seems to tally.

Thanks ShaunJ, MaxD, Cas, Jess5athome, Nanny Jan and Jim1 for all the advice, information and photographic interpretation.

My main purpose here was to positively Sgt. TYLER, as I often watch period documentary films and wonder who the subjects were and how they lived their lives, and I feel that has been achieved. I had doubts that he was connected to (my wife's) family and that has been confirmed.

Thanks again.

I know it has been a couple of years since this post was first put on Rootschat, but I wanted to let people know that the family of Sergeant Tyler have been found, and his grandson and other grandchildren are over the moon to be able to see this footage.  My cousin shared this post with me earlier last week, we connect to Sergeant Tyler's father, William Tyler born 1856, son of George Peter  Tyler and Mary Ann Luttman, via their son Peter Tyler.  I was reading the comments in the posts and thought, I know these names - I'd looked at them in December 2018 when my friend, the grandson of Sergeant William Tyler and I joked about my interest in family genealogy, only to discover that we were connected via my 3rd Gt Aunt, the wife of his 2nd gt Uncle!  So imagine my surprise to recognise the names.  I went back to my research tree, and yes - there they were!  So I sent over the Pathe film and he, and his family are absolutely delighted to be able to see their family members, and we think one of ours might also be in the film as well - the lady stood on the step with a flat cap, we think, might be our 3rd Gt Aunt - Martha Tyler nee GEE!  Thanks again Rootchat members for all your hard work on this one.  It has paid of.

For my part, I found the Sgt Tyler hunt one of the most enjoyable threads I have taken part in and am
delighted to hear about the splendid outcome for so many families!  That is why I do this!

Jackie - you might like to let folk know what your connection was with his grandson, they'll love it  :)
