I saw this entry but dismissed it, as far as I know John & Mary Ann settled in NSW most probably in the Lithgow area as this is where Mary Ann died.

When Mary Ann died in 1925 address is same as the 1930 electoral entry i.e Hassans Walls Rd, Lithgow.
Oldham - Williams Sutcliffe Brett/Britt Milner Moran
Rochdale - Shaw
Saddleworth - Winterbottom Whitehead Broadbent

Leeds - Berry, Chadwick
Womersley, Knottingley, Campsall - Pearson, Atkinson
Banffshire - Calder, Craib, Bremner
Birkenhead (Tranmere) - Roberts, Verrinder

So if the address & area are correct as per her death cert - why did you dismiss the 1930 entry?

If John was a similar birthyear as Mary and alive in 1930 - then you have a timescale from 1930 to around 1950 for a death for him which may give you more info
