Hi Dave

There are a few David Davies marriage records to choose from with an Elizabeth Bevan on the same page:-

Marriages Sep 1895
Davies David William Pontypridd 11a 800 Elizabeth Jane Bevan on the same page

Marriages Dec 1897
Davies David Evan Pontypridd 11a 956 Elizabeth Jane Bevon on the same page.

Marriages Jun 1899
Davies David John Merthyr T. 11a 1070 Elizabeth Ann Bevan on the same page.

Marriages Jun 1901
DAVIES David Stephen Swansea 11a 1505 Elizabeth Ethel Bevan on the same page.

What does David Davies's occupation say on Thomas's birth cert for 1908?

You may be better to ask your wife if Thomas had any siblings.

his occupation was coal miner.my wife did not know her grandparents as they died before she was born and her father never spoke of any siblings.

Hi Dave

The 1911 census for Glamorgan has not yet been released to my knowledge. This should answer a few questions and also the length of years that David and Elizabeth have been married should be stated, pointing towards a marriage date.
