Shirley~I,m getting the hang of it Report 3 Jan 2018 13:03

well as they changed occupations its difficult to say who is the right one

the one i posted looks a possibility

how do you know he was born in staffordshire

he didnt have any family as a witness on the marriage cert to see if he can be found on earlier census

now you have his actual birth date any birth cert you get should get a match on his birth date
it may mean getting a cert

AustinQ Report 3 Jan 2018 16:57

The 1911 posted by Shirley, certainly looks a good possible. Unfortunately his baptism doesn't note his date of birth. As Shirley said, at least you now have a birth date to match to a certificate.
