2 Marriage Certificate, No. 337. Thomas as the father of Cyril is an error or mishearing on the part of the Registrar. There was only one Cyril Green born c.1905 whose father worked on the tramways, and that was Cyril son of Toft, living in Colne in 1911. The NSW BDM Index (Deaths) shows Cyril's parents as Toft and Bettsy Ann. Note that Cyril's sons were named John Luke Green and James Toft Green - the elder son's second name being that of his maternal grandfather, and the younger son's being that of his paternal grandfather. Cyril's paternal grandfather was named Thomas.
