I thought he may not have been with his parents on 1901 census  ???

From the postcard address of A Mansell HMS Ganges

snippet from
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Ganges_(shore_establishment)

HMS Ganges was a training ship and later stone frigate of the Royal Navy.

She was established as a boys' training establishment in 1865, and was based aboard a number of hulks before moving ashore.

She was based alternately in Falmouth, Harwich (from 1899) and Shotley (from 1905)
