HI. This is rather like asking for a John Smith some where in Aus. 1900 to
Records if any still survive will probably be at either the National Railway
Museum in York or at the Records office in Kew London
Maybe this will help. You say Popular well as Guards were required to work as
and when their trains ran they clocked on at some very odd hours i. e 7 mins
past 3 in the morning and as public transport could not be relied on at such
odd hours they normally lived with in walking distance of their signing on
As the record only says Guard it is difficult to know if Passenger or Goods.
I suggest that the railway companies you look under are
1st Great Eastern Railway
2nd North London Railway
£rd London Tilbury and Southend
If you are very lucky maybe the little known Blackwall Railway at that date.
Do you have an address from which the lady got married from that might help
to locate which railway Company you are seeking. With the London Docks close by
there was a miriade of small Freight yards from nearly all of the big Railway
Companies of the time.
If you let me have the address I'll see what I can do.
