Hi, We're looking for help in finding the birth details for the above. He married in 1899, age 31, and his father was listed as Henry William Reynolds (occupation hatter). We have order birth certificate for the William John who is listed top of the search results, but this was wrong father. We can find father in census all the way through but no mention of son. Can anyone help uncover where and when he was actually born. Thank you.

Father's Name: Henry William Reynolds .........hatter
Mother's name: Ann Reynolds

Interesting that William John went from being a Labourer on his first marriage in 1889 to Engine Driver on his second marriage in 1899

pm from Angela:

"Hi MarieCeleste,
This is the correct William John Reynolds I'm looking for with his first wife Ellen and daughter also named Ellen.
However, it is his birth birth details that I can't find.
His marriage cert shows his father as Henry William Reynolds, a hatter by trade.
This is my brickwall. The Henry William Reynolds, hatter did not have a son named William John!!
