Dear Ann,
Thank you for your reply.
The only census I have found him on is the 1911 - he is aged 40 named Albert Charles Evans and born Lambeth. His age varies on his army papers, his marriage certificate and his death certificate.
Hi Linda

His father's name and occupation (from the marriage certificate) might give us a better chance of helping you find him on earlier censuses.

Best wishes

Dear Caroline,
Here are the details of his marriage certificate:
30th December 1893 - Albert Charles Evans - 26 - bachelor - gunner R.A. - Dover Castle - father James Evans - labourer. Helena Sarah Bland Clark - 18 - spinster - 65 London Road - father Thomas Bland Clark - sailor deceased. Both signed their names. Witnesses John Shepherd & Olive Clark. The Parish Church, Buckland, Dover Kent

Here are the details on his army papers:
Albert Charles Evans joined the Royal Artillery at Woolwich on the 14th October 1887. He stated that he was aged 20 years 9 months and was born at Lambeth, London in the County of Surrey. His trade was a carman.
This was his description :- height 5'6½" - weight 147lbs. - chest measurement 35" - complexion fresh - eyes hazel hair brown - religious denomination Church of England distinctive marks scar left knee of right leg - physical development very good small pox marks nil - vaccination marks left arm 3 - when vaccinated infancy

On his discharge papers his father was shown as J. Evans of Lambeth.

Thanks Linda
