name lookup

trying to find a edwin munden all i know is that he had a son frederick munden and on fredericks marriage certificate 1887:confused: it has deceased written under edwins name and that he was a sergeant in the royal marine artillery dated
In the 1881 census he is listed as soldier born 1859 in Woolwich Kent and with the Corps of Royal Engineers,South Camp Aldershot.
where was the son married? do you know Edwin's birthplace ? wife or where he may have come from? perhaps we could find more info on the other censuses . I see you are from Cornwall do you think he was born there?:)
all i know at the moment about him is that on his son fredericks marriage cert in 1887 is that father is edwin munden and written underneath is deceased. But on his birth cert it has father written as gwilym munden and his mother as caroline johanna munden formerly giddy, but the fathers occupation on both is sergeant royal marine artillery but cant find edwin or gwilym anywhere:confused:
On the 1861 England census there is a

Gwilym Thos Munden 39 Sargeant RM Artillery
Caroline Munden 22
Emily Mary Munden 1 Mo

in Portsea Hampshire, Gwilym born Penline, Glamorgan.

Thanks gedcom, Do you think this gwilym and edwin are the same person cant seem to find frederick on the 1871 census living with gwilym:confused:
He looks a good possible, I cannot find anything further at the moment. They could have been abroad or if Gwilym had died Caroline could have remarried. Will keep having a look around.

This looks like Carolines birth registration which ties in with the above census as Caroline says born Devon on the 1861

Caroline Joanna Giddy, Q4 1838 Plymouth Devon
Volume: 9
Page: 382


ps, there is a marriage with a Caroline Joanna Giddy in 1855 but no Munden/variant on the same page. Registered Plymouth, William John Horrell or Edmund John Kent on same page??
