Debra. WOW. Thankyou. My grandmother May, died in a TB hospital and is buried at Woorooloo cemetery. But there’s no record of her in our govt system, so I’ve ordered both hers and Joseph’s death certificates for more details. You given me more to go on. Thankyou again. I love family history and doing it on all sides. My dad will be pleased to see my grandfathers service info. 🙂.

I was told by my grandfather that Henry was a great uncle to him. Trying to find the link, as one of Henry’s brothers is my GG grandfather, who married May Claridge of Claridge hotels. Not a lot of info on Henrys siblings. All on the famous one. My grandfather John, and great grandfather Joseph, were both born in England. But my grandfather was brought out to Australia as a baby in 1911. They started out in eastern Australia before moving to Perth Western Australia. Apparently, after his parents died which left him an orphan at 20, no family on the east coast would help him. So he never kept in touch with any of them.
Also, this was given to me.
