Hi

but can find no trace of her birth.

Family information

Married England 1919 then emigrated to Australia where they remain for their lives
Birth of child Henry Robert 1920

Any help would be much appreciated Thanks

Thanks for trying
I'm just hitting a wall. It's strange because I know that the death record that I've found is correct , you would think that a birth record would be quite easy to find

Could she have been born 'at sea'?

Looks like Queensland births online only go up to 1914.
Where was Henry jr. born?

1932/C3961 Dawn Edith Keirs Henry Florence Marie Clayton
1921/C2693 William Keirs David Keirs Hannah Stenhouse

Hi Sylvia
yes that's the one I had found and it is certainly one of my relations. just a bit strange that I cant find a birth. I even tried today checking if she had been born on the journey to Australia but not a lot of luck
Thank you for looking
