I have found a few more clues to the Blanchards who have Denman as a middle name but I think that you should follow Colin's advice about the best way to proceed at the moment. Working on what you told me about your Grandfather Tom Denman Blanchard, I found the birth of a Tom D Blanchard registered in Glanford Brigg district of Lincs, Q3 1913 vol 7a page 1303 with the mother's maiden name given as Drury. Does that ring any family bells? As Colin says, once you have a birth certificate with your Gt Grandfather's name you know you are on the right track.
I did find other Blanchards born in the mid 19th century, some in Lincs and at least one from the same family born in York, who might be connected but they can be sorted out later. Part of the problem is that the census records do not always show the middle name in full so there are several with the middle initial D who might be 'Denmans' but who might be anything.
