Right. Well that spells out the situation quite clearly. :P

As you say,  Mckha489, the given name of BARTLETT is not mentioned, but perhaps it has been establishedas Alfred in some other way??

I would be search for previous and later mentions of him to help eliminate him as Alfred WELLS.

Finally have the 1943 electoral roll loaded.  Alfred is a mechanic.  Jean is not showing as with them.

1901

Alfred Bartlett   28 Mariner
Annie Bartlett   33
Elsie Bartlett   4
Hilda Bartlett   1

Another child Arthur  b about 1905

I think this Alfred  is still alive and on the Isle of Wight just before WW2 still working as a seaman for SR (southern rail?)

Added, I can see them in 1911 but I canít find the free link to post.

Looking at the electoral roll for 1943 in South Australia, After her marriage to- I think- Lionel Henry SYMONDS, Jean is living at Druids Av. Stirling West.

This may be the home of her parents as their address is also Stirling West, but no street given.

Probably Lionel her husband was away on service.

ADDING

Lionel's service record is digitised and there is a photo of him in it ;D

Thanks everyone.

The divorce case is indexed in the National Archives catalogue:
https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C8029490

Quote
Reference: J 77/1803/6231
Divorce Court File: 6231. Appellant: William Oscar Attrill. Respondent: Eva Harriet Attrill. Co-respondent: Alfred Bartlett. Type: Husband's petition for divorce [hd].
Date: 1921

I don't have anything more than this currently. The only time I requested a divorce file from TNA I was very disappointed with how little information I received. However in this case anything, even just an address might be helpful.

Looking more at what everyone has found I am back to thinking Alfred Wells and Alfred Bartlett may not be the same person.

Need the certificate to answer this, will order another copy if I can't find it. Will check with a distant cousin who I think has a copy.
