William Reaney's birth???

Lytham St Annes
William Reaney was born in 1828 Sheffield, and definitely died in 1888. (He was buried with his wife Hannah Maria Fisher in Sheffield.)
I've got a pic of the garve where they are both buried, but there are no names or dates on it, only a plot reference.

I ordered the marriage cert and William's father was George Reaney, cutler.

1) I can't find William's birth / baptism details anywhere. There is another William Reaney from Sheff, I think born in 1827 but it's not him. My William Reaney ended up as a table blade grinder. He was living without parents in 1841, at Dais(e)y Bank Hill, Sheffield.

2) There are at least 4 George Reaneys that could have been William's father. If anyone can help, I'd love to know what his parents were called / when they were born etc so I can continue.

I'd be Sooooooooooooooooooo grateful if anyone can help me.
Ruth. :kissu:
