There are at least 2 Police Gazette Notices for the arrest of John Francis Llewellyn for failing to support his wife in 1915 and in 1926.  He is of the correct age in both notices. (47 in 1915 and 58 in 1926).

Mentioned in his mother's funeral notice in 1925 as Mr and Mrs John Llewellyn and family.  No later mentions by family notices, ie in 1938 in the funeral notice of his nephew Harold Williams (where all his living siblings were mentioned) he is not mentioned and is presumed as no longer in contact or deceased by then.
