Can't see a birth, presuming you mean 1871, but there is a Selina Ann Longley born Sep 1868 Kent.

That looks to be her, in 1891 she is a servant in Croydon age 22.

Oh but Selina Stringer already in 1901 not Stoner  ??? with her parents.

These appear to be your Thoams' parents as on his birth reg mmn = Porter

Marriages Sep 1865   (>99%)

Porter    Mary Ann        Pancras    1b   160    
Stringer    Samuel        Pancras    1b   160    

This might help to check you have the right marriage certificate in 1915

Is anyone else finding this as confusing as me?

1. First, there does not seem to be a Thomas with the second names Josiah William bc.1873.

2. As Thomas J. Stringer his birthdate is given later as 17/11/1873 - however, there are only 2 Thomas Josiah Stringer births Dec.qtr.1873 - one in Aston, Warwickshire and the other in London.  BUT he is not the London one as that one was born 25/10/1873 (bp.4/1/1874 Camden)

3. There is only one Thomas Stringer in Croydon on last census, single - has the right type of occupation but is shown bc.1871 place not known!    Also has adopted son who he is living with in 1939 and yet you say he lived with his wife's grandparents??

'Your' Thomas Josiah Stringer is not the London 1873 one as already explained (son of Samuel and Mary Ann, marriage just posted by lancsann) who had a different birthdate and is living with wife Ada in 1939.

Things just don't seem to be adding up.

Thomas Stringer's 'adopted son' - John William Thomas Stringer married Edith Isabel Nye 11/9/1926 St. Martins, Croydon - John's address is 1 Henley Villas, Dartnell Road, Croydon which is where Thomas, John and Edith are in 1939??

Yes.  Am hesitant at going off on the wrong tangent  :-\

Perhaps the poster could confirm exactly what information they have to go on so we can recap.

Thank you or the info I have received information that he joined the army and supposedly dererted Selina ,  He then died in the ww1 in France
Selina married Thomas Josiah Stringer  in Croydon Surrey 1915  but where Selina is in 1911census is a bit of a mystery,  Possible Croydon area  any information would be most helpful

Regards


George

Do you think the Selina Stringer with Longley boarders in 1901 is the right Selina?

I realise the birthplace for her is Coventry but the combination of surnames is too coincidental.

Will post it in case

Selena Stringer 30 head married dressmaker
Henry Langley 65 boarder
Eliza " 63
Charles " 12 grandson - this is son of Selina - confirmed by WW1 papers
Elizabeth Ledger 20 visitor born Croydon

Add looks like 30 Exeter Rd Croydon
