The informant, Margaret Jones, is probably a nurse/adminstrator of some sort, as she was present at death at the cholera hospital where Thomas died. But the certificate gives Thomas' occupation as bricklayer. Wasn't your man a shoemaker on Margaret and Hannah's birth certs, and a cooper on William's marriage certificate? Another change of occupation, or the wrong man?

HHMMMmm, thanks for your views sdup26 - the change of occupation is making me think this is the wrong guy. I'll now search and see if I can find any records from the cholera hospital or maybe burial records ??
