Robert Charlton Stationmaster at Bensham, Gateshead. Help Required

Post by paulthompson » Fri Jun 23, 2017 2:18 pm

Hi,
Robert Charlton married my Great Aunt Maria Thompson January 1923 at Gateshead. The marriage certificate states his occupation as Station Master and address as Station house, Bensham, Gateshead. I have an address for them in 1935 at Denewell Avenue, Low Fell, Gateshead and he is down as Station Master. After that nothing. Would anyone out there have records of where he was a station master or if he stayed at Bensham. The 1911 census has his occupation as signalman NE Railway. His father Ralph Charlton in the 1891 & 1901 census is listed as railway engine driver, obviously for the NE Railway as they lived in South Shields. Any information I would be so grateful.
Many thanks, Paul Thompson
