The only other thing I can think of would be Electoral registers, but then you again have the problem of is Marsh Farm in Chelmsford or whatever area it is covers Hockley?
Chelmsford 1918 is available to look at online through Seax and includes Woodham Ferrers, but I could see no mention of Marsh Farm.
Not sure which district to search for for Hockley. Rayleigh perhaps?

It is indeed the one on the north side of the Crouch. Unfortunately my lot were then in 1901 but elsewhere by 1911, with the former head of household now living at Guinea Pig Hall (or cottage), Runwell. No sign in my 1917 Kellys either, or in a streetsearch for Hockley...
