    I've checked the 1901 census for anyone b 1891 +/- 2 in Yorkshire. No Thomas. There is, in different families, William and Alexander of the right age. There's a couple of Thomas Coulsons in different places when I switched on the similar, sounds like and soundex filters.

    Anc's BMD collection for TC over the whole of the UK 1891 +/-2 only gives 5 hits:
    2 births in Lanark and Woolwich, 2 deaths in Barrow in Furnace and Woolwich (the Woolwich B&D are 3 days apart, same middle name) and one for the 1939 in Lancashire.
