Dorothy McCulloch born 1904 Wakefield emigrated to Australia 1904
« on: Friday 17 April 20 13:17 BST (UK) »
I am looking to see if Dorothy Kemp (born McCulloch) had any children. She was born in Wakefield Yorkshire and emigrated with her father James Jack McCulloch, Mother Teresa Catherine Rutter and brother William James McCulloch.

She lived 16 Stephen Street, Preston, Heidelberg, Victoria, Australia between 1939 to 1946 with her husband William Albert Kemp who was a conductor.

Any help would be appreciated

When did she marry?  If there is any possibility that any of her children could still be alive - no details can be given here as Rootschat has a no living persons policy

According to the index entry on PROV wills site, Raymond John KEMP was an electrician.  His  address from 1963- 1980 electoral rolls:
14 Wattle Grove, Reservoir West, Victoria, mechanic.
There is a woman at the same address who also appears on the Victoria BMD marriages, and is the name mentioned in the engagement notice found by matthewj64.
https://my.rio.bdm.vic.gov.au/efamily-history/5e97b238d72898233cd61fca/results?q=efamily

The last electoral roll entry for William and Dorothy is 1980
1980, 1977 William Albert KEMP, no occupation given, Dorothy KEMP at 300 Pigdon St, Carlton Nth
1972 William Albert KEMP, no occupation given, Dorothy KEMP at 14/170 High St, Northcote.

There are some earlier ones and in 1949 and 1954 while they are still at Stephen St West Preston at the same address is a female L... J..... KEMP, table hand Electoral rolls do not show relationships so there is no knowing if this was a daughter.

I see from your other thread the James Jack died in the war, but he was UK enlisted. In your opening post in this thread you say he came to Australia. Did he return home to enlist?
