Tudor Society member Olga Hughes has just published an article "The Blacksmith, The Brewer or the Shearman: Who Was Thomas Cromwell’s Father?" on her Nerdalicious blog.
It's an excellent article which examines whether Walter Cromwell was actually Thomas Cromwell's father, his occupation and his reputation.

Thanks so much for sharing this Claire!
Really interesting article. Thanks for sharing.
Is Walter Cromwell. 1568. To 1632 a descendant of Thomas Cromwell. If so I’m a direct descendant.
I’m not sure, sorry! Thomas Cromwell had a son, Gregory, who had children, but there were other branches of the family too.
Walter Cromwell 1568 married Annis 1570 on a branch of Thomas Cromwell family tree.
Was always told we were descendent but I’m now doubting it. So sad
