Edwin Prestoe Tarrant
« on: Thursday 25 March 21 17:57 GMT (UK) »
Hello
I am trying to locate a lost relative of mine called Edwin Prestoe Tarrant.  He lived in Australia before WW2 and may have lived through the war and for years afterwards.  Alternatively, he could have died around 1931 or 1932.  Does anybody know anything about him?

Hi ....and welcome.


I had a look for his name and Ancestry has many trees for him.

Both Byfleet Surrey in 1899. Naval duty as a midshipman. Married 1921 moved to Australia in 1928.

He appears to have died/ disappeared  1933 believed drowned whilst swimming......no body found.

Welcome to Rootschat  :D

There is a passenger list mention of him.

Daughter might still be alive. 

Don't know whether this is the daughter here:-
