Ah, ha, searching through the possible Alfred James Evans, in Hackney; without buying lots of certificates, we have an Alfred James Evans married to a Bessie.
Going back to the Crow Lane cemetary records, there is a Bessie Evans buried in 1940, aged 68, wife of Alfred James Evans. They are living at 68 Burlington Avenue, which happens to be virtuallly next door ro Astor Avenue in Romford, where Alfred and Julia Evans lived, and Ellen Julia lived until the 1970's.
In 1881, he shows as James Alfred, so reverses his christian names to avoid mixing up with his father who was a Printer in 1881, as he is by 1926. He is aged 5 and living at 115 Blake Road, Camberwell.
In 1891, he is living in Camberwell with his in-laws and father. This is part proof that this is the correct person as he is a Printer & Machine warehouse boy, aged 16; at 7 Davey Road, Camberwell.
In 1901, Alfred and Bessie are living in Hackney at 48 Lansdown Road, they are sharing the house, so probably a flat. They have a son Alfred John, aged 6 months, born in Dalston; who may be my grandfather or an earlier child who mort. Alfred is a Stationery warehouseman aged 25, thus three years the younger of his wife Bessie.
In 1911, Alfred James and Bessie are living at 64 Wellbourn Road, Tottenham. They are aged 35 and 38 respectively and married for eleven years (suggestig a marriage date of 1900). They have four young children, and note that one other child had died at some stage. Alfred is still a Stationery warehouseman.
Alfred married Bessie in 1900 in Lewisham. (Bessie was born in 1873 in Hoxton, London, died in 1940 in Romford and was buried on 10 May 1940 in Crow Lane cemetary, Romford.)
I am not certain of this marriage.
