Knights of Australia
« on: Monday 01 May 17 17:38 BST (UK) »
Hi, I am new to this board and wanted to know if anyone knows or has contact with a Max Knight in Australia. He has posted in Mitchell Family online about the Knights of Bristol and Australia. I have tried to contact him through this but have had no response.
Some of my family went to Australia and I would believe he is a relation of these people and I could finish some of his family tree.
Sorry I have no further information on Max but just hoped someone may have had contact with some of his work.
Thanks

Thank you for this link. Iam trying to find Max Knight as the information he has on this webpage contains members of my family that are still alive and I'm interested to know how he has found this information out as we obviously have a link!

Hi InezK,
You could contact Simplicity Funerals, Erina, NSW Phone: (02) 4365 2333 http://www.simplicityfunerals.com.au/funeral-home-locations/nsw/erina-nsw
See these KNIGHT death notices.

From the notices, spouse is not mentioned in either notice, so wondering if there was a separation.
Simplicity Funerals, Erina appears to have handled both cremations.

Cheers :)
CoL

Hi InezK,
I'm the Max Knight that you have been trying to locate. Apologies for not responding sooner but I only seen your post last night - I haven't been doing any family research for a few years now because of other priorities but I think I should get back into it. My email is .... - I look forwaed to hearing from you. Cheers Max

Hi again Inezk,
I meant to mention in my earlier reply that Herbert John Knight is my great grandfather. I think that we can exchange a lot of information. Cheers

Max
Can I suggest that you PM InezK also.  A moderator will likely remove your email from this post - or you should do so yourself - for privacy reasons, scams, etc.
