1901 Census Details

MILLS

Hello all,
I'm trying to track down the 1901 Census details for Percival John Robert Alexander.
He was born in Cardiff, on 26 September, 1888. Parents Luke Ramshaw and Leah Alexander.
He joined the Royal Warwickshire Regiment in 1908, discharged same year and joined Worcestershire Regiment and discharged on 25 November, 1915.
1891 Census records him in Cardiff. 1911 Census shows him boarding in Balsall Heath at the home of his future wife. He marries in 1912 and then resides in Birmingham until his death in 1959.
In 1911 he appears to work on the trains out of Cardiff.
From 1891 until 1911 he seems to disappear. I know his parents work in Hospitals/Nursing.
If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.

If Promenade is watching I would appreciate any information on Pte Percy Alexander, 8010, Worcestershire Regiment. I have seen the records on Findmypast but was wondering if you had anything further on your database?

Thank you all for any information on this man.

Regards,

David

Thank you both.
I did find this record but as father's name John, didn't match or his occupation I was sceptical. Still it is most probably the right one so thank you.

I think you can be certain that it is, everything else matches.

The census taker seems to have a bit of nightmare with Luke's details. Maybe trouble with the accent.

Yes on reviewing all the details I have found I agree. Thank you.
