In your tree on Ancestry you have that 1911 that I posted.

Are you confusing the John Edward Christians?

You have put:
'my fathers paperwork for his army service it has his mother as Elizabeth Allan in 1936 but Mrs C Christian in 1950'

so was his Mother Elizabeth Allan, and only later married John Edward Christian?

Have you found any of your family on the 1939 register, and Catherine Dowell before her marriage on the censuses?

I found Catherine Dowell on North Isles Family History, (this also had her brother Andrew also at the same address and later they both lived at Wykeham Street, Kirkdale which I think tied up the correct people ) ( I hope ) and I looked up the address in Liverpool she lived at on 1891 census saying she was a resident at 33 Tillard St, Kirkdale, Liverpool, and Also the UKBMD index showing the marriage of John E Christian and Catherine Dowell in 1906 in Kirkdale

If the correct family is the one I posted for 1911, as in:

John Edward Christian Head 33   Kirk Andrews  Isle Of Man
Catherine Christian   Wife    33   Liverpool, Lancashire
William Lawrence Christian   Brother 30    Kirk Andrews  Isle Of Man

then John Edward was not born in Peel but in Kirk Andreas  so you have the wrong John Edward Christian in censuses before 1911, and parents.

Have you applied for the marriage certificate of Catherine Dowell and John E Christian for further information on their families?

guess I'll have to stop until I get the marriage certificate for them as I'm not too sure now

I was basing my findings on this info from the ManxBMD.com
Birth, Marriage and Death Indexes for the Isle of Man

1878    Christian    John Edward    Peel    A1    46

As there was no other John Edward CHristian born on the IOM then
