    You must have his mother's name from his birth certificate though. What is it please?

    I assume he is the boarder here:
    https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interacti...QaAidAEALw_wcBName:

    Alfred John BlackallAge in 1911: 6
    Estimated birth year: abt 1905
    Relation to Head: Boarder
    Birth Place: Henley On Thames, Oxfordshire, England
    Civil Parish: Chilton
    County/Island: Suffolk
    Country: England
    Street address: Nr Waldingfield, White House, Chilton, Sudbury, Suffolk

    Are there records on why he was placed there, were there any connections with Suffolk? I guess they were just 'foster' parents as there is another boarder with them. (both ages mistranscribed on Ancestry)

    How sure are you that Alfred was born 1904. Do you have later records of him apart from the link you gave.
    It's just that I have just seen this which seems odd???

    the site that the list is on says:
    "Clarification on the use of the term 'orphans', I had an e-mail from a rather irate/upset fellow family researcher stating that his/her relation was not an orphan as she knew who the parents were I only use this term as they are people I know about but I do not know enough about them to include them in my family file.

    There are two tables for Blackhalls/Blackalls in England.
    The first covers Northumberland & Durham,as I have found that most of these originate from Scotland.
    The second covers the remainder of the English counties.
    (the counties are named using the standard Chapman codes)

    If anyone can fill in the blanks for any of the people listed please contact me"

    I note that there is an NG on the entry, but have been unable to find what it means.

    His parents may not be dead, although the fact that he is on his own in Suffolk is not looking to good,

    Have you got the birth certificate or even a marriage certificate that might give more clues on his parents?

    There is an Alice Blackall that died in (late) 1911 in Henley, she could have been unable to look after the child before her death
    Name: Alice Blackall
    Estimated birth year: abt 1886
    Registration Year: 1911
    Registration Quarter: Oct-Nov-Dec
    Age at Death: 25
    Registration district: Henley
    Inferred County: Oxfordshire
    Volume: 3a
    Page: 1015

    That list looks more like a One Name Study

    From Post #6:

    Blackall Alfred John (no mother's maiden name)
    Henley 3a 1006
    Jun 1904

    You need to buy this birth certificate from GRO - you only need to register once.
