Thompson James Shaw and Sarah Lathbury
« on: Tuesday 05 February 19 22:04 GMT (UK) »
My relative, Thompson James Shaw, was born in 1900. From information on another website, I found that he married a lady named Sarah Lathbury in August 1927 in South Perth, Western Australia. Does anyone know if this couple had any children or any details regarding their lives?

Any children born to that marriage may still be living.   

Rootschat has a no living persons policy so their names/details could not be given here unless they can be shown as deceased

Do you have the death certs for either Thompson or Sarah?   In most of the Australian states, the BDM registries will include the names and ages of the children of the couple.   

You did not mention the names of the parents of either Thompson or Sarah, but if you have the WA marriage certificate, those and many other family history details about both the bride and the groom (ages, occupations, birthplaces, etc) will be on that document.   

I wonder if this is your Thompson arriving in Australia?

Could Thompson J and Sarah be back in the UK and on the 1939 register perhaps he as an RAF Squad Leader   dob 20 November 1900 for him and 10 Jan 1900 for her.  There may be at least one other at same address.
