    I'm interested where I might find his records after 1926. He still has the profession of "sailor" on his 1936 wedding certificate. 1929 is of particular interest. I think I may have tracked him down on an electoral census as living in 42 West India Dock Road, Stepney, London. Right next to the docks. He doesn't appear in 1928 or 1930. Is there anywhere I can locate records for that particular year (1929) to see if it is him? Thanks

    One mistake on it, he was born on that day in 1894, not 1895

    As you have found that info on FMP, is there no CR1 with it as well?
    Besides that , have you looked and applied for his full Service Record through the NA Kew??
    If it exsists may be found in CRS10 Series! That being BT364 ???

    I notice that there are 2 listed at FMP, one with the Number 914033 (BT350 ) Born 1895 and the other 914333 ( BT348) Born 1894 , wonder now if the same Person! , Must surely be as both Born Dublin!

    May be an idea to get to the NA and search yourself in the following!

    Reference: BT 350/1
    Description: Surnames A to Z (fiches 1 to 2932): includes supplementary listing A to W (fiches 2933 to 3098)
    Date: 1918-1921
    Held by: The National Archives, Kew
    Legal status: Public Record(s)
    Closure status: Open Document, Open Description

    Would also look in this Series while there

    Reference: BT 349/1
    Description: Surnames A to Z (fiches 1 to 3175): includes supplementary listing BLA to PR (fiches 3176 to 3179)
    Date: 1921-1941
    Held by: The National Archives, Kew
    Legal status: Public Record(s)
    Closure status: Open Document, Open Description
