There were 4 Walker Diggles pre-WW1: our Walker, a son & grandson of his cousin Edmund, and an unrelated guy - son of Mr Diggle Walker and his wife, the former Miss Walker.
The 1910 death is Edmund's son.
In spite of having such a distinctive name to search for, it's tricky as it's often mistranscribed (this is from someone with Hesmondhalgh and Thirlaway in their tree).
Here's the census refs for Walker:

I wonder about this 1911 Wales Census:

Age in 1911: 35
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1876
Relation to Head: Head
Gender: Male
Civil parish: Wrexham Regis
County/Island: Denbighshire
Country: Wales
Street Address: 4 McDermotts Court York St Wrexham
Marital Status: Married
Years Married: 9
Estimated Marriage Year: 1902
Occupation: Pedlar

John Buchanan 35
Rose Buchanan 28
Thomas Edwen Buchanan 6
Sarah Jane Buchanan 4

Can't find a marriage for John & Rose nor children's births under the name Buchanan. Don't know why birthplaces aren't showing in the transcript. The image shows John & Rose born Whitchurch Salop and the children born Chester.

Hi

Have found Annie Diggle with father Walker mistranscribed ( on Ancestry) as Mann in 1901 (the transcriber used the surname of the family above them.)

There is a family of Buchanans on the same page. John isn't with them in any census as far as I can see and of course he gives his father's name as Samuel on marriage, not William, but it seems rather a coincidence. I would imagine they are related somehow.

Thanks Linda,
Very much appreciated, Samuel has came up before, I'm sending for the marriage certificate after the New year. I do believe they are all the same family group. Amazing but from only a couple of days ago, we knew barely nothing. Now I've even seen the church my great grandparents were married in, wonderful. I've found information that maybe John Buchanan could have gone to Canada , find out soon, as I saw it on a passenger log . Anyway Happy new year to you & everyone else on here :-)

Whitchurch is only about 12/15 miles as the crow flies from Crewe. John's marriage cert could possibly confirm...possible siblings being witnesses at the marriage??

1871 census states that Samuel and Susannah came from Mayo, Ireland.

Doesn't help with John in later years though :-(

Yes I've wondered that too Buchanan is such a Scots name, really couldn't have been too many generation's back.? I still don't know what became of him, I'd love to tell my dad.

not that it seems to help too much at finding his birth. I wonder if he was actually born in Scotland with a name like Buchanan

All of you are right, I have my grandmothers birth certificate but I couldn't work her maiden name which is indeed Diggle :-D
John Buchanan seems to have vanished shortly around my grandma's birth, sadly the subject became Taboo when my dad was a child.??
