Welcome to Rootschat Joanne  :D

John and James birth records are recorded at the GRO under this heading:-

Gro Regimental Birth Indices Supplement (1761 To 1924)

John Craig 1838, Volume R.A.24, Page 84

James Craig 1841, Volume R.A.24, Page 106

If you wish to you can order them from the GRO but you would need to register first.  Click on ordering a birth certificate then find the one for overseas.  Fill in the details as requested.

Or you may be able to find baptism records for them, on Ancestry perhaps.

And a warm welcome to Rootschat from me.

FamilySearch has 7 entries for Craig born in Gibraltar - but nothing helpful for John.  They are:
James CRAIG born c1841: 1871 census Everton Lancashire, furniture broker, wife Dorothy and three children; also 1901 Census Liverpool Lancashire, furniture dealer, father-in-law to William GUY
Thomas Henry CRAIG born c1836: Chelsea Pensioner (Gunner)
Nathaniel CRAIG born c1850: 1851 Census Hampshire with mother Mary (soldier's wife born Waterford)
Thomas CRAIG born c1847: 1851 Census Guernsey, son of William (soldier) and Margaret.
Rebecca CRAIG born 1883: immigration, Vermont 1924

James looks to be a good match for your John's brother.
Thomas Henry might be another sibling.
Nathaniel might be another sibling.
Thomas and Rebecca are probably not relevant to your search.

So, - no sign of your John on a census on FamilySearch.  The hunt goes on!

Great help Philip. I am 99% sure the info you found on James Craig is related to my John Craig. I will keep looking further.

Have you got a link to the 1911 census I presume you are looking at? As I cannot find a matching birth for a Charles.

Only

Or


CRAIG, CHARLES       HARPER

Perhaps she was Mrs Owens née Harper at marriage
currently concentrating on a number of Staffordshire families.
