My great grandad Albert Well was born in London about 1895. I think maybe lewisham or camberwell part of london he was born. He married A Dora Candy 1918.

Hello
This is a difficult one as there are several Albert Wells.
I think I've found his marriage Dec qtr 1918 3a 2283 Henley on Thames to Dora Candy.
She was 20 daughter of James Frederick Candy.
Albert was 23 son of Thomas Wells.

If he returned to Lewisham this might be him.
Albert Wells age 67 died Dec 1962 5d 69 but really it's difficult to tell with such a common name.

From the marriage certificate, what was his father's occupation?

Father was a tent peg maker. And Albert was a tree feller.

He appears to have fathered three children in Henley. Try to obtain the marriage certificate of the daughter. It may contain valuable clues,

I have now obtained the marriage certificate for his daughter and it has him deceased. The thing is I can not find a death for him between 1927 and 1945.

Birth, Sep 1941 Islington 1b 116
Heales, Edward J.
mother Ballard

Death, July 1987 Islington 13 1303
Edward John Heales
d-o-b 5 July 1941

Dora Wells, d-o-b 18.3.98, is in Islington in the 1939 Register. At 37 Marcellus Road. No Albert, but it says Dora is married. Her name on there was later changed to Heales, but it doesn't seem to indicate when the change was made. Can't see a marriage for her to Benjamin.

I can see an Albert Wells, 23, who was a tent peg maker in 1901. Living in Rotherfield Greys, near Henley. Did this chap have an older brother Thomas perhaps?
Your Albert gave his residence as Sonning Common on the 1918 marriage. Not sure why you think he was born in London.

I thought it was London when I first investigated in 2015. But know more now.
