John Richard McDonald b Q2 1883 Flaxton, Yorkshire, England
« on: Thursday 13 January 22 12:19 GMT (UK) »
The above married Jane Anne Neatley 19 Apr 1911 Handsworth, Yorkshire, she was born about 1885. His parents were Frederick McDonald and Betsy nee Flint. Her father was James Neatley.
John appeared in Military records applying to join AIF 31 Oct 1916 at Perth, WA but was discharged unfit 9/5/1917. He recorded his wife as Jennie and that she lived at Crawley, WA.
I can find no records for them after 1917?
Please help.

On his military forms John’s occupation is a clerk/salesman
In the 1915-17 electoral rolls this couple seem to be living apart. He is living in Parkway, Nedlands, working as a brewery employee, and she in in Crawley. I did not see any births of children in WA.

Have you checked to see if either one, of both returned to England?

Can't see either of them returning to the UK. Another brick wall!

Jane died in 1957 in South Africa:

I think this may be John's death in 1948:

Probate confirms place of marriage as Handsworth, spouse as Jane Ann, and lists a son

Thank you very much for finding their death records which shows a son. They seem to have been real globe trotters!
