Hi there

Was 1900 the year of the marriage? 

Do you have Albert & Sarah on a census to give his birth year and birth place?

The marriage was 1926. 

Looks like Albert was born 1904.

You may need the marriage certificate to confirm the name of his father but this family is a possible.

Mother - Edith
Father - Jeremiah

This is the marriage registration.  You will need these details should you wish to order a copy of the certificate.

Marriage Sep 1926 Leicester
Albert Withers
Sarah A Spriggs
Volume 7a
Page 717

Marriages are registered in quarters so the actual marriage date may not have been in September itself. 

Another thing you can do is look for Albert & Sarah on the register that was taken in 1939 which should show his date of birth to look for him on the 1911 census.

Hope this helps.

Albert Withers died 1981 Leicestershire - death reg shows birthdate as 4.12.1903 which I suspect should be 4.12.1904 given the birth entry on freebmd

Birth registration:
Name:   WITHERS, ALBERT
     Mother's Maiden Surname: WAINWRIGHT 
GRO Reference: 1904  M Quarter in LEICESTER  Volume 07A  Page 280

To me this suggests he was born 4.12.1903. as birth was registered early 1904.
There is some confusion as the 1939 register has his d.o.b. as 4.12.1904

OK guys I have found his father Jeremiah in 1901 census but the one thing that confuses me is the PRISONER remark in the relationship to head of household? Any ideas?

Here is a link to it
