Profile

Full name Thomas Graham
Born 12 March 1905 in Medomsley, near Consett, county Durham [registered in Lanchester, Durham, June 1905].
Birth/census notes There was a confusion here, there were two dates given by Lamming as a date of birth.  The other being 5 March 1907. The fact is, there was a Thomas Graham registered in each of the three years in June 1905, June 1906 and June 1907. Only the 1911 census return could confirm the correct Thomas Graham.  Being the only one in Hamsterley Colliery, but stated as being born in Medomsley.  The correct birthdate is also stated on his death registration.

Census Notes

According to the 1911 census, the six year-old Thomas is the fifth of eight children to his mining father, John Edward and Mary Ann. They live at 14 Prospect Terrace in Hamsterley.

Died 29 March 1983, aged 78 years 17 days [registered in Rushcliffe, Nottinghamshire].
Height/Weight 5' 8", 11st. 0lbs [1930].

Due to the fact that many matches rarely stuck to exactly ninety minutes long, allowing time for injuries, errors and substitutions.  The minutes here given can only ever be a guideline and cannot therefore be accurate, only an approximation.
