Hi, I wonder if you can find a death notice for Laurence Harry Harding b. 1905 London. I know he served one year in Army. Discharge 2nd June 1941. He married Monica Elaine Webb 1937 North Sydney but divorced 1945. When married 1937 was living Darlingnhurst West, East Sydney NSW. I can find no more info about him and would be grateful if you find any snippet about him and possible Death Notice.
Many thanks,
Sylvia

Hi Kerri, Thank you. I wonder if there are records and even better, photographs, of burial head stones, for Australia, as William is buried at Brighton, Melbourne, and his gravestone has some lines of music on it. Many thanks.

My mystery is John Skinner ROBB 1902 (Scotland) - 1958 "Traralcon" ? Victoria.

Married to Ann (e or annie) CLARK 1904 (Scotland) - presumably died Australia.

Daughter Evelyn ROBB born circa 1940, Burntisland, Scotland.

They all emigrated to Victoria Australia in 1950.

I understand Evelyn may still be living and this may be outwith your area of research however I and other family would be interested to know. A death date/place for Annie would also be appreciated.

Thanks for your kind offer of help. Malcolm.

Hi,
I'm looking for anything on my great, great grandparents William Beresford Wray and Elizabeth Wray, who went to Melbourne, Australia in 1860, with their children, including my great grandmother Mary Agnes Wray. He was a professor of music and the five daughters were known as the Little Nightingales, a singing group under his direction. He died in 1861, from consumption, but I know nothing of Elizabeth. The eldest daughter was also Elizabeth and there was a son Walter William.
Would greatly appreciate anything you can find out.
Thanks. Georgina

Hi Kerri,
I am looking for Waddell family from Drouin, Victoria.
In particular, family of Ronald Fletcher Waddell born 1915.
FYI,
Edith May Fletcher (1880 - 1939) married Randall William Waddell (c1880)
Her brother is:
Henry Edward (Harry) Fletcher (1872 - 1908) married Alice Tempest (1869 - 1942)
They are my great grandparents.
Edith & Henry's parents were:
Arthur Fletcher (1844 - 1917)

Ronald Waddell (1915) is the son of Randall & Edith.
He married Fay Clarke on 21/12/1946.
