Hi Carl :)
It could be worth your while to pay subs to 1911 census.
In the free list I've found James 1879 living in Wolstanton
Mary Hannah aged 27yrs
Florence Ethel 9 yrs, Annie 4yrs, James 3yrs
I hope this is of help.

I found your Thomas born in Wolstanton maiden Beckett
sept qtr 1914
and the death sadly of little Thomas aged 1yr in 1911 Wolstanton
and Mona too 0 yrs 1912.
They often named other children after the ones who had passed away back in those days.
