Please does anybody have any information on Jack McMahon prior to or following the 1939 register. I do not know the surname of Ellen nor is it noted in the register. ( She is listed as Ellen McMahon)

I can't find a record for a Jack McMahon marrying an Ellen. However since Jack is sometimes used as diminutive of the name John (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_(given_name)) I wonder if the following might be a possibility for his marriage:

Name     John Mcmahon   
Event Type     Marriage   
Registration Quarter     Jul-Aug-Sep   
Registration Year     1919   
Registration District     Fylde   
County     Lancashire   
Event Place     Fylde, Lancashire, England   
Spouse Name (available after 1911)    Anderton    
Volume     8E   
Page     2000   
Line Number     108   
John Mcmahon probably married one of the following people
Name Ellen Anderton 


"England and Wales Marriage Registration Index, 1837-2005," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:262M-5JJ : 13 December 2014), John Mcmahon and null, 1919; from “England & Wales Marriages, 1837-2005,” database, findmypast (http://www.findmypast.com : 2012); citing 1919, quarter 3, vol. 8E, p. 2000, Fylde, Lancashire, England, General Register Office, Southport, England.

Unfortunately this can't be correct as Ellen in the 1939 register was born in 1908.
Well spotted, I should have checked that. I like the look of the possible marriage you have suggested below.

If the one given by Paul isn't the right one, you could try searching further afield, maybe they got married in Scotland or even Ireland. Also Ellen could be Helen or Eleanor.
