Brian George Lee married Judith Marion Hearne 1960
Brenda Margaret Lee married Alan Rudge 1958
Dennis John Lee.... married Coral Shepherdson 1960

(hopefully the Library can at least trace Brenda Margaret (& Alan) RUDGE from 1958+ and Dennis John & Coral LEE from 1960+)

Hi seems they may have come to Fremantle/Perth. 'Find My Past' shows these having left Southampton 1954:
John Lee b1908
W " b1912
Brian G " b1933
B M " b1937
D J " b1941
The 'West Australian State Library' (on-line) has an 'Ask a Librarian' service ...they may be able to trace the family/families from electoral rolls ...though I noticed a 'Brian George Lee d 1987 age 46yrs. There are also a few possible deaths for 'Win' and 'Jack'/'John'. Hopefully they will find 'D J Lee' (Denis?).

I am looking for my cousins or possibly their desendants. They are Brian, Brenda and Denis Lee who emigrated to Australia in February 1954 with their parents Win and Jack Lee (Jack born 1907 approx in Dartford Kent). They lived in Dover Kent U.K. prior to going to Australia.
