Going by Clive's military records, his next of kin changed at some time. Looks like Mr J Williams, then Eliza is noted.
Her address is 63 Mary Street, Highgate Perth.

Thanks gibbo.

It's all new to me. Didn't know he was in the army.

So Weatherburn is not from a parent but a grandparent.

Wonder if John had 2 marriages, The 1st been Eliza and then Sarah :confused:

GoNe, but not forgotten.
-Inserted by his loving daughter and son in-law. John and Sarah Williams: also Clive (on active service) Basil. IHarel, Garnet and Edna (grandehildren). Bigbgate Hill, iPerth. Auckland and Melboorne papers please copy.

Hello again

I don't know how this site works (so sorry), but this person - Basil George Weatherburn WILLIAMS is my paternal grandfather. How can I find more information about him. I know he died on 23 Jun 1966 at age 70.
