    any idea what occupation this is?

    Maybe, Lower Bebington is right next to port sunlight, could have been something to do with Vim the product. I don't know - it can stay a mystery for now. Hopefully when the 1939 register is released it might shed a little more light onto it. On a plus note I may have found a small link between...

    any idea what occupation this is?

    I've never heard of this one and neither has 'google'. A Little background first incase it's related. Tegid was a 'dyer' on the 1911 census, his father a tailor, his mother a draper. The picture is from his marrige cert. Any ideas as to what this profession might be?

    How to find Mary!

    Theres also 1 in Denbighshire at St Asaph 1899 to William Jones. I suppose the next thing is to see if the registry office in Flintshire is friendly and will check to see if the fathers name on the marriage to Thomas Richard Jones is Thomas Williams, if it is then it's a definate possibility...
