I am looking for a Thomas Jones According to the 1939 census he was born 29 - 04 - 1880 and married Gladys Maud Davy 20 - 07 - 1918 and this is all the information I can find for him, I have checked the Ecclesall & Sheffield birth records for him with no luck although there are a Thomas henry Jones born 1880 in Attercliffe, a Thomas Harold Jones born 1880 but died in 1881and a Tom Jones born 1880 in Ecclesall buut none of these match up with the Thomas I am looking for.
In 1939 he was living at 56 Moor Grange Leeds with his wife Gladys Maud Jones, Gladys died Jan - Mar - 1892 in Leeds age 91.
Hoping you can help me.
My very best wishes.
Fred, you should solve this with the 1921 census which is due to be a available on FMP in early January 2022.Less tha 2 months to wait
I don't think Thomas Jones was born in Sheffield his marriage is on FMP and his father was called James (I think that is what it says) and he was a traveller when Thomas married he was a Representative.
Jones is a very Welsh name I think he was born around Neath area by looking on the 1881 census. However i have not yet found a Thomas Jones with a father James on the 1881 or 1891 census but have only had a quick look.

Hi Fred, Moira et al,
There is also another birth reg: 1924 Q4,Sheffield mmn DAVY, female, SHEILA M(MARY) D.(DAVY) JONES.
Fred you should be able to trace Sheila and any living descendants as there is a possible marriage in 1950 Leeds.
