Many thanks for all your replies, this was just what I needed for my tree.

Look's like Charles Thomas Kemp died in 1961, his wife May Kemp in 1948 and their son Charles Douglas Kenneth in 1988 all died in Australia.
Still trying to trace Charles Thomas Kemp's trip back to England on his own before returning to the family in Australia in 1960.
And not sure if the son got married and had a family but would be nice to know.
My best regards Georgina :-)

Thankyou ? Cherilyn ?

Charles Thomas is an ex officer on his first voyage and a registered male nurse on his latter.Could be some clues there.

I did not find their return to UK.
Why did he return to Australia alone?
Did they all return to UK?
Do we have May;s death?

May I suggest you amend the title of your thread to include Australia to draw the attention of Australian researchers.

Also remove the marked as answered or people will think the query is dealt with.


Georgina Report 11 Apr 2012 16:40

Dear LadyKira
All the above facts correct. Charles Douglas Kenneth Kemp was the son of Charles Thomas Kemp and May Kemp nee Meaking.
I have no other information on Charles Douglas Kenneth Kemp when he went to Australia in 1922.
Many thanks regards Georgina
