There's a Thomas Steward Matthews born in Woolwich Registration District in 1900?

Or a Thomas William Matthews born in Maidstone Registration District in 1903?

Tom died 1980
East malling Kent
Not sure of where he was living in 1939 but have been told that he ran away from where he was and worked as a trapeze and there is a photo of him sitting on a big horse outside a circus tent is the only info I have been giving and that maybe he was bought up by an uncle called
Funham matthews but these are just stories I have been told
Any help would be much
Appreciated
