Sorry, this all seems pretty inconclusive, unless someone else can sort the wheat from the chaff.... :-(

Hi Kucinta, Yes it appears to be inconclusive, thanks for taking the time to look. Michael and John had another brother called Patrick born between 1895- 1897, can you see if he joined up as well please? On the Irish Census they have the name as Cremen not Cremin. Thanks
