The is a Queensland marriage registration in 1934.

There is a Queensland death registration for a John Nelson Shadbolt in 1961.

Registration 1961/B45296.
F: William.
M: Elizabeth Wilson.

The B in the registration regers to Brisbane & C represents the country.

There was a John Nelson Shadbolt baptised on 2nd November 1902 at Saint John, Waltham Green, London.
Father, William Shadbolt, horsekeeper of 56 Waltham ?.
Mother, Elizabeth Jane Shadbolt.

The birth (baptism) year of 1902 is different than the WW2 enlistment birth date if they are the same person but many WW2 enlistees put their ages up or down to be able to join up.
