I have the registration of his birth, parents Thomas Pratt and ? Walton and recorded on his daughter's (Lilian Louisa b.1890) marriage certificate.

What is Thomas's occupation on his daughter's marriage certificate?

His father Thomas was deceased when Walter Edward got married in 1884, so no occupation given - pity!
The marriage of Walter Edward to Mary Ann Lawton in 1876 that Louisa Maud found is too early.
I think Walter Edward living with his aunt Mary Helmiker in 1871 could be right. Mary would have been Thomas's sister.
Walter Edward was described as a porter/warehouse porter on both of his daughters' marriage certificates (1913 and 1914). He seems to have died in 1932, City of London, unless that was the one married to Mary Ann Lawton.
I'm not sure we can get much further. Thank you so much for trying.
