Ancestry also has a Thomas A MILLETT born to a mother with the maiden name
of VAUGHAN in the Wirral in the June quarter 1918. Looks like volume 8a,
page 602 (or possibly 608, it's not very clear). So before the marriage of
Henry and Mabel. Not sure whether that will help or confuse the issue - yes,
Thomas could have been born before the marriage but is it likely that Henry
and Mabel would have moved from the Wirral to Camberwell to get married and
then back to the Wirral where Winifred was born?
Thomas and Winifred could be unconnected, but it would be quite a
coincidence to have two VAUGHAN-MILLETT marriages?
