He's listed on the Trade Union records as being admitted 14 Feb 1915 aged 42, a signalman for GW & (I think) LNW, and if I've followed the right line he was superannuated 6 Jul 1938 £23 old age...

'Next steps' are entirely up to you, but if you want to order his birth certificate then you need to use the GRO site already provided. You can order it in PDF form for £7.
The family is easily...
I couldn't resist, so I looked up the baptism for the Thomas Richardson son of James & Margaret Ann... and it looks like its him :D
St. Bartholomew, Thornley, County Durham
Baptism 24 Dec 1871...
Perhaps you could tell us a little more about Thomas & Elizabeth's children - names & order of birth might be helpful as it was fairly common for families in the North East to follow the traditional...
A full transcription of the 1851 is online, and Mary is listed as a widow.
5 Stirling Street, Galashiels (Town), Melrose (Parish) Roxburghshire
Mary Wemyss Head Widow 48 b Sutherland, Dornoch ...
If its a Depot then it may well be an accounting base, although this would normally still be referred to as HMS [something], even though it was a shore establishment. What is the context?
To save you the cost of the certificate, I had a few credits left for Durham Records Online, so here's the transcription:
3 Dec 1842, St. Mary and St. Cuthbert, Chester-le-Street
To look for the Australian BMD info, start here (its worth reading down before you hit the 'Search our records now' button towards the top):...
This information was already given in post #9
Eleanor Charlotte was baptised in 1864 as Elinor Charlotte Nelson Wright (born 1 Dec 1859), so I think its safe to say that she is the same person as Eliza Charlotte Nelson Wright/Dalton.
The death indexes for Victoria show her as Eliza Charlotte Nelson Dalton (shortened to Eliza Chtte Nelson Dalton)died 1917, Melbourne East, Mother's maiden name Eliza Steer, Father Chas Austin...
The transcription is wrong. The image is available - took me a while to find as its been wrongly transcribed too. Search as James KNIGHT and Emma PETERS & you'll find it!
Or to find it by...
My thoughts exactly, but I can't seem to find any of them again - except that school record - until their marriages, which are all at different churches / areas, and none acting as witness for each...
haha, don't worry about it Pam - I'm constantly missing stuff. And if a thread has already exceeded about 5 replies, I'm usually completely lost!
I've just looked again at that 1893 marriage and...
If you go back to the first reply, you'll see that the 1911 census was signed as James Thomas Lincoln Wright.
His birth has been identified in post #3 as below:
WRIGHT, JAMES THOMAS...
There are suggestions on Ancestry that his father was Charles Austin Wright, who possibly turns up in Australia in a lunatic asylum in Victoria. The Australian newspapers (1896) say he was a new...
Thanks for the update.
Google maps I think also supports that it may well be her on the census. Her location at marriage isn't that far away, relatively speaking.
She is listed on the census as Domestic, not daughter.
The reference 2-9-09 is not a date, but an occupation code, which stands for Hired Girl, per this publication (page No. 78): ...
I'm no expert on Wales either, only the tiny bit my family came from, but if my Googling is right then a Llanelly birth would be registered in Crickhowell, and there is no John Evans mmn Howell/s for...
The first mention I can see of what may be him, is in the Adelaide unclaimed letters list 10 April 1849 as J W Platt.
I believe this was a Mr Charles Platts. There is mention in the South Australian on 29 Mar 1850:
"Mr Charles Platts was on board the Trafalgar"
Also in the Adelaide Times, 1 Apr 1850:
Well Joseph b1860 certainly ties in with the births I found and also with the information about his estate, but I cant find any reference to the arrival you mention. I can't even find the Trafalgar...
A Google search brought up local wiki for Adelaide Hills, which lists several entries apparently confirming the above information, although some seems a bit muddled:
PLATT, Mr turncock Adelaide...
If I have the right man, children born in SA seem to be:
John William 1855
The names of the children certainly tie in with the...
Sorry, I missed this post but have replied to your PM with links to his medal card, medal award rolls, and the war diaries.
PS: Just glancing through the war diary, the entry for 28-30 Oct 1915...
