Thomas Colwyn Evans, Blaina or Newport

I am looking for my grandfather, Thomas Colwyn Evans, born about 1888/9, probably in Newport. His father's name was John who was a Cab Proprietor (according to TCE's marriage cert) but I have no more information about his mother or other relatives. He married Florence Philpotts (nee Simpson) in 1918 in Bristol, they lived in Newport until about 1934 and then moved back to Bristol where he died in 1957. They had two children Joan and Audrey, both of whom have also since died. I believe that there was family in Blaina but have no details at all about any relatives. I cannot find any birth records showing this full name, plenty of Thomas Evans but I do not have enough information to decide if any of them is the one I am looking for.

TCE was an engineer according to his marriage cert and I believe that he worked for Bristol Aeroplane Company when he moved to Bristol. There is a Joseph Rosser Poole named as a witness, who was also an engineer, so they may well have worked together, probably in Newport.

This is all the information I have. Any help would be gratefully appreciated! Very difficult without more information I know.
