Alexander was Clerk Assistant To Board Of Guardians in Bristol in
1911, so he does seem the most likely candidate. Sometime between
then and 1915 he became the Bristol registrar.
It might be worth contacting Bristol Register Office to see if they
can confirm it is him.
Next question: what sort of training, if any, would a registrar have
needed at that time or would his skills as a Clerk been enough?
