Looking for the Father of Alfred MARZOL / MARSDEN of Lismore NSW

Query by Jagged

Alfred MARZOL was born in Lismore NSW in 1897.
He was the 3rd child of (unmarried) Mary A MARZOL. His birth certificate, nor that of his older brother Charles and sister Mary, does not name his father. The only clues I have are that he was a neighbour, and the name PERRY has been thrown around for years.

Mary MARZOL later married Walter GOODSELL in 1901 in Lismore NSW. They had 7 children: Dulcie, Ellen, Louisa, Maria, Walter, George and Ethel.

Alfred MARZOL changed his name to MARSDEN during war time. Maybe it sounded too german, and maybe it was a blend of the names Marzol and Dean, the people who adopted/raised him.
He was a driver with a Field Company of Engineers during the First World War.
He also served in the Airforce in the Second World War.

He married Ivy Kathleen TANNER, a munitions worker, on 9/2/1918 at Knowle, Bristol. His address at the time was Brightlingsea, Colchester. He brought his bride back to Australia and they had 6 children. The relationship ended in divorce after Ivy fled to NZ.

Alfred married a second time in 1941 to Beryl Alexandrena STAFF and had another 6 children.

Any information would be appreciated as I have come to a stop on that branch of my family tree.
