Re: John Henry Taubman 1917-1945

Two Ancestry trees say that the John Henry Taubman who was killed 21 Jan 1945/buried in Stittard War Cemetery, was the son of Henry Taubman and Sarah Frances Bridson. But they give no further details, not even a birth year.

After some digging around, I think that this looks like the right one (assuming that the Ancestry trees are correct):

From birth registration index:
Name: John H Taubman
Registration Date: Apr 1916
[May 1916]
[Jun 1916]
Registration Quarter: Apr-May-Jun
Registration District: West Derby
Inferred County: Lancashire
Mother's Maiden Name: Bridson
Volume Number: 8b
Page Number: 1099
Marriage of his parents (from familysearch):

Name:Henry Taubman
Event Type:Marriage
Event Date:30 Oct 1909
Event Place:Malew, Isle of Man
Event Place (Original):Malew, Isle of Man
Marital Status:Single
Birth Year (Estimated):1881
Father's Name:John Taubman
Spouse's Name:Sarah Francis Bridson
Spouse's Gender:Female
Spouse's Age:19
Spouse's Marital Status:Single
Spouse's Birth Year (Estimated):1890
Spouse's Father's Name:Thomas Bridson

In 1911, his parents were at 123 Malew St, Castletown, IOM.
HT 30 sailor in Merchant Service b Castletown
Sarah 21, married 2 yrs/no children, b Peel

Can’t find any siblings of John Henry Taubman b 1916 (born on IOM or mainland).

Can’t find a marriage for John Henry Taubman b 1916.
