Hi all,
My great Uncle Nelson was born in South West Arm, New Bay (Point Leamington) on Aug 6th, 1897 and the birth was registered by Selby Jefferson of the Methodist faith on October 21, 1897.
The spelling of his surname on the birth records was SHIRREN however the spelling of his surname as he wrote it on his regimental attestation papers was SHERREN and the spelling on his headstone at the Douai Communal Cemetery in France is SHERRAN.
I am trying to find the original Methodist church parish birth records for that time and location and would appreciate it if anyone has some hints. There does not appear to be any records as yet posted on the NGB site.

Any help would be appreciated. Images below (I hope this works) of headstone, birth certificate, attestation papers and a letter from his father.

If the images don't appear try this link https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10163549776320510&set=pcb.10163549781970510&type=3&theater
