A burial search doesn’t show them.

If they were cremated in Toowoomba, you could email here for details:

My Cup Floweth Over!
This Law Document names two of the Aden born daughters that I found on a 1947 passenger list.  I think that there might be a third sibling.
Many thanks

Thank you
Looks like the correct family!
"formerly from Somersetshire, England."
Journalistic elasticity?
I have some maternal roots in nextdoor Wiltshire:

Margaret Bruce Long
1889–
BIRTH 1 JAN 1889 • Marlborough, Wiltshire, England
DEATH Unknown
=====
But I see that a GIFFARD sibling is registered in Somerset but without a forename!

Violet Margaret Giffard
1915–1989
BIRTH 20 FEB 1915 • Tyntesfield, Bedminster Down, LONG ASHTON, Somerset, England
DEATH 17 NOV 1989 • Cape Town, South Africa
====
Births Mar 1915
GIFFARD   Female   Long   Long Ashton   5c   938
====
Sibling Jacqueline GIFFARD may have been born in USA as she arrives in Liverpool aged 10 months 25 Dec 1918 and I have not found an English birth for her.
https://www.ancestry.co.uk/imageviewer/collections/1518/images/30807_A000647-00245?pId=17739201

Jacqueline's father appears to have been a Military Attache in USA in early 1918,
Jack Giffard Lt Col, Military Attache in 1918 OBE
1884–1956
BIRTH 27 JUN 1884 • Chester Square, London, Middlesex, England.
DEATH FEB 1956 • South Africa ?
