I am looking for Keith Sparling (b 1937 Romford Essex) who emigrated to Australis in the 1960s

I'm afraid that no one by that name showing up on the Australian Electoral Rolls during 1960 to 1980.

You could try looking in White Pages online, which is the Australian telephone directory.

Sure it was Australia? There's one in New Zealand who first appears in 1969.

There is no death recorded for Keith or Cynthia Sparling in NZ .

(There is a Cynthia Lewis Sparing ( b 1929) who died in Jun this year, but her obit confirms that she was unmarried.)

Interesting that on the ER of 1981, Keith Sparling is a" Marketing Consultant"

There are a couple of books on this subject written in the 1990's by KEITH SPARLING.
I am guessing that it may well be the same man.
