You'd have been better to add this to your other thread about the family, Lindsey, to keep all info together and avoid any duplication of research:

Lindsey Report 10 May 2021 18:24

I have an Isaac Collins brn 13/05/1870 in monk Soham.
I have him on all the census’s up to 1901 past this I have nothing, he was in the army and then discharged.
I cannot find out what happened to him I certainly can’t find a death record, I have tried the 1911 and 1939 but nothing.
They only thing I’ve found is Isaac on the 1901 census in Canterbury kent it says he is married there is an Emily with him. I’ve searched for a marriage but there is non. There were the banns for a marriage between Isaac Collins and a Emily Richards in 1901 but there is no date for the marriage on the record .

I do have membership for FMP at the moment if anyone has any pointers

Many thanks in advance
