KG, thanks.  I'll have a look when I can travel to Kilkenny.

heywood, no residence.  I have my relative's army records, marriage cert, birth certs of his two children, entry on 1911 census (aged 46) but no record after.  His army records show 4 different ages!

He's alive in 1914 when declared 'medically unfit when trying to re-enlist.

There are a few birth certs which could be him (same father's name as on marriage cert) but can't identify.

Need his birth certificate to go back further. Hoping death cert would help.

I hope you don’t mind but going off what you say here, I might have identified him in 1911 - only a few 46 yr olds :)
The search looks fairly straightforward using his residence on his marriage and then searching the census for that townland.
There is a likely family there and records to match.
It looks then that your man can be tracked back.
It would seem that he was born before civil registration but there is a baptism.
Mind you, I could have the wrong man entirely but I am just trying to show that it seems possible from the available records.

Hi Heywood,  I have him on the 1911 in Callan.  I know where he lived and I'm aware that he had two children (one of them my wife's mother).  I'm trying to find his birth cert to identify his parents.

I believe I've identified his parents thanks to heywood.  Thanks also to KG.

Looking forward to travelling from South Wales to Kilkenny to visit family and continue research when restrictions are lifted.
