Hi,

I would like to know more about my Great Aunt Frances Sophia Hoy she was Born on 24 Sep 1891 in Bermondsey Southwark London.

All I know is that she married an Australian Soldier in 1920 by the name of ???? James and had one daughter in Australia I don't know where they married but in 1983 their daughter was living in Victoria.

Thanks

Eddie

many Thanks for that

Searching on Google Maps for the address:

came up with

Lascelles Street, Hopetoun, Victoria, Australia

So it looks like the street name is correct.

Thanks

Eddie
