Lorna Eva Broadway b 1907 Christchurch, Canterbury
« on: Tuesday 12 February 19 10:50 GMT (UK) »
The above was the daughter of Edward Broadway 1868 -1926 and Elizabeth Honnor 1871-1949, she seems to have gone to England to marry Frederick William Keith G Humphreys q1 1936 at Paddington, London. They returned via Sri Lanka to Freemantle, Australia 4 Jan 1947, he was b 1904 and a Commander in the RNIVR. They appear together at 1972 at 7 Bretts Rd, St Albans, NZ but by 1978-1981 only Lorna is there.
Is it possible to find out when they both passed away and whether they had any children?
