George Thomas Golding was born 9th December 1886 in Horsemonden, Kent.
His parents were George Golding born 1864 Etchingham, Sussex and Minnie Jane Golding nee Bromley born 1865 Goudhurst, Kent. I am trying to find George Thomas Golding on the 1911 census. I have looked on Ancestry but nothing found to date. Might you have a look for me please in case I have overlooked something. Thank you

Thats great thank you, I hadnt seen that!

Hello Erica
I dont know what to think really. Deptford looks to be around fifty miles away from Horsemonden. I have been loking all day today for the 1911 census. I have now ordered the 1915 marriage certificate to see if that sheds any light
Thank you
