I finally got the death certificate for William Albiston, although on that he's named as John William Albiston.I don't know how to put attachments on here (or even if you can) but if you're interested, I could send you a copy of that and birth certificates for 2 of his daughters, all 3 of which show different information.
He seems not to have known whether he was coming and going! or else he was a bit of a rascal and trying not to be found out.
My email address is email@example.com, so if you'd like copies just let me know your personal email and I'll send them to you.
BTW, his parents definitely were James and Harriet.James is listed as a chemist on the death certificate.
