  • Notes 
    • There is no record of a marriage from 1912 to 1928 - Grace Taubman was always quite elusive about her marriage and so it is possible that they were never married. Also, it has been suggested that he had been married before and it is unlikely that he would have been divorced.

      The marriage was finally discovered and on the marriage certificate, Thomas is a widower which implies he had been waiting for an earlier wife to die before he could make Grace Taubman an honest woman. Witnesses were George Bailey and Edwin Rayner.
