His medal card shows that he was also in the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, Service No. 8414.

Can't see any Service record.

Thanks, I did find that, but it seems to be a civil marriage,  I am researching RT and his mother, both are buried in Wrexham Cemetery together. Christiana seems to have been a widow when she married , but I'm struggling to find her maiden name.
Robert Jones 🙄 oh well !

Yes, that's her. She is in either 1901 or 1911 census and her daughter Alice is step daughter  to Robert. But I cant find her or her other Evans sons birth.
