Looking for Thomas Henry Lancelot LEWIS
« on: Thursday 23 July 20 13:47 BST (UK) »
I'm looking for Thomas Henry Lancelot LEWIS.  I have very little info and I'd appreciate anything anyone can offer.

Thomas Henry Lancelot LEWIS
B Abt 1870 (based on age at death)
D 4 August 1946, NSW
Lived in Kensington, NSW
M 1894 Letitia Stacia EVANS, Sydney, NSW
Children
Elsie Letitia LEWIS (1895-1975)
Sylvia Therese LEWIS (1897-1973)

I don't think he was born in Australia, but can't find an arrival that fits, and with such a common name, I can't identify a birth in the UK (possibly Wales).

Any suggestions for other avenues to search would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance
