Australia Lookups completed / Re: Thomas Albert McGRATH/Nellie HAZELHURST

Hi Tropicalj,

That is really very good of you. I kind of thought that he must have married in Australia, I con't find any detail over here in any of the records. She must have been married when she came back in Jul  '34 although she came back under her maiden name. I have a Nell Hazelhurst coming back from S Africa in 1914 aged 5 and I cannot seem to find her birth details to fit in anywhere.  I guess that a copy of the marriage cert is in order.

Thank you very much for your assistance.  I know about Thomas as he is in my maternal line direct back to 1850.

Bob

Further to my first post on this, Thomas & Nellie lived in Melbourne. They subsequently assisted my Aunt & her husband when they went out on the £10 Pom scheme. Thomas never registered as an Australian (so I've been led to believe)

Thanks Kris for the fast reply.  I reckon that they came back for the birth of the baby and that he went back out in advance of them after she was born.  As I said I couldn't find any ref here for their marriage so reckon that they married out there. Same with Nellies birth unless Nellie is short for another name.  I have to pick away at this one now.

Thanks again
Bob

I am trying to locate marriage details of Thomas albert McGrath born 1905 Belfast and Nellie Hazelhurst born 1907 probably England† near Hoylake /Wirral. They both died in Australia, Thomas in '63 and nellie in '51. Their one child, a daughter (*) and may still be alive in Australia.

I have so far been unable to locate birth details for Nellie or marriage details in the UK.
Thomas was my granddads brother and was in the AIF in WW2. Photo is of Thomas & Nellie

Any help would be appreciated

Thank you

Hi again Lucy,
Strange...I have just googled him as you suggested and he is definitely the same guy as on the flyer.... Still  if he doesn't want to play... he must have his reasons Strike 2

Hi again Lucy2,
Sorry about not acknowledging the other leads. I wll be following them up without a doubt. As I mentioned , They are a rather remote link to my wife's family but they are going onto the tree. If it was just close links that we added it would be a sorry do..

Thank you very much for the look ups. If there are any descendants of William Martin out there, I have family info for them back to c 1757.

Thanks again
Bob

Hi Lucy2,
Thanks for the link there. I have had a look and I think that although the names are the same, The dates are a bit too recent. As I said before, I don't properly know when the flyer was for but I have a feeling that it was just after one of the wars. I will check it out and drop him an email.
