The signature of John Shely and John Shelvy appear to be made by the same person. Film # 1850186 (LDS church) near the end of the film if you want to check it out.

I know that the last few marriages are not Shelveys but John Shelvey must have know these people to be a witness at their weddings. I thought you might be interested.

There were a few entries listed from the Parish of St. Mary the Virgin, Sandwich, Kent at the beginning of the film. There was one Shelvey entry. George Shelvey Abode-Eastry Union infirmary buried May 9, 1918 looks like 4 days written in the margin.

All the Baptisms and Marriages from this film are on the IGI but I haven't found the deaths on there.
