Nope.  That could be him. Right location and year of birth.

Thank you

A search on GRO site for birth registrations of children, selecting phonetic option for surname and name derivatives option for forename,  using estimated year of birth on census + or - 2 years found these registrations:
McDermott, Hiram, mother's maiden surname McDonald, GRO ref. 1861 September Quarter Colchester
 Volume 04A page 244
McDermott, Beatrice, mother's maiden surname McDonnall, GRO Ref. 1875 September Quarter Luton
Vol. 03B p. 424. Occasional copy A.

As Thomas was born around 1871 I assume he had the same mother as Hiram and Beatrice. His place of birth on 1881 census was Gosport, Hampshire. Which record has birthplace Poplar? The children on 1881 census were all born in different places.  Search for Thomas on GRO births index, 1871 + or - 2 years , add mother's maiden surname McDonald, selecting phonetic or similar sounding option, and leave registration district blank.
You need to register on GRO site before you can search.

Thank you so much

Thanks to all.  thanks to the tip about GRO I have successfully managed to find what I think is his daughters Birth Certificate, which will hopefully allow me to put a name to his wife

Thanks
