Half-length, slightly to viewer's left but almost full-face in midshipman's uniform with the baldric of 1827–1833. Tildesley was born in 1811 or 1812, the eldest son of Lieutenant Thomas Tildesley RN. He was appointed a first-class volunteer in the 'Protector', 2 guns, in 1830 but this was changed to the 'Wolf', 18 guns, in which he served until 1832. He is then supposed to have transferred to the 'Cruiser', 16 guns, but does not appear to have taken up the position and does not appear in the 1836–1842 index of officers.
