I wonder if someone could please do a 1891 census lookup
I am doing some research for a relative and have found him in the 1911 census. This is a William Bowers born c1855 in Ripley,Surrey . He is married to Martha Matilda and has a son Walter .
Looking in BMD I see that they got married registered Jun 1883.
I would like to know of any other children etc. I'm afraid this is the only information I have at the moment
Thankyou Chris
