Well done, Maddie! Curious thought that his name changed from Dominic to Thomas between 1921 and 1929. Also the fact that his birthplace changed to England.

very sorry for late reply, my father is ill and its been a bit hard for me.
mary dad was called patrtick Sweeney thank you I do have bits but not a lot.
I also had a picture of a grave stone with Thomas on.
the story goes that mary used to go visit the grave and next but one to it was the mrs crockers grave and her husband used to go visit there
this apparently is how they met.
I have never been convinced that dominic changed his name to Thomas
can any body tell me how do I go about finding the the grave or information on the late dominic martin please
may I thank you all for your lovely work

I believe that Dominic and Thomas are one and the same. The address is the same on Thomas' death record as it is for Mary's remarriage where she gives her father's name as Patrick Sweeney.

For info, Charles Crocker's wife also died in 1934

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JKDK-MR4

Name Mary Ann Crocker
Event Type Death
Event Date 29 May 1934
Event Place Toronto, , Ontario
Gender F
Age 45
Birth Year (Estimated) 1889
Father's Name George Bristow
Mother's Name Annie Bristow
Spouse's Name Charles Crocker

marriage was 1910 in Uxbridge, in England

The death cert at that link shows her buried in Prospect Cemetery, so the story of how they met seems plausible.

(Findagrave does not show any of these names although Prospect Cemetery is supposedly over 90% photographed.)

I had left this tab open and just saw it again when my Firefox rebooted - just wanted to note, about Thomas/Dominic's name.

The Dominics I know are all called 'Dom'.

I imagine that became 'Tom', either because that is what people heard or because he decided life was easier to be a Tom than a Dom.

So then he became 'Thomas' ... by what's known as 'back formation' :-)

Dominic to Thomas seems odd ... but Dom to Tom is easy.
