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

It makes sense they are different people or surely they would have taken Jack to Australia too.   But, I have to say the timeline for meeting and marrying Alfred Wells is pretty tight!

Yes, Bartlett, living 50 yards away at the time of the "event", needs to be hunted out if it can be done :-\.

Mysteries-
Why is the boy named Jack?
Why was the rush to be married so urgent that it was enacted bigamously?
Just as easy to leave for Australia and marry later, after the divorce, surely
What was it about BARTLETT that required a "warning against"?

Itís not 50 yards away, but we donít know exactly where they all were living in 1918. However they are all in the same area in 1911, certainly walk8ng distance
And that Alfred Bartlett I have found has the right occupation.  I donít see another Bartlett who ďfitsĒ but perhaps someone else might,  ;D

I wondered about the sister who gave evidence. Where was she living? And why didnít she mention Alfred Wells if she knew her sister had already upped sticks and gone to OZ.

He had a certain reputation perhaps
