A disappearance of Gertrude Phyllis Coxhead born 1897
« on: Thursday 18 June 20 12:59 BST (UK) »
A Gertrude Phyllis Coxhead born 1897 left England for Australia in 1920. She sailed from Liverpool heading for Sydney on the Argyllshire ship and now has disappeared.  If anybody has any information as to whether she married or died over there I would be grateful. Or maybe she returned to the UK but I cannot find any evidence  of her doing so.

Thankyou Cupoflife and Essie for your help and it is correct because Gertrude's father was Peter.  It gets very frustrating when you hit a brick wall and this one is down.

Once again many thanks for your help
