I cant find a marriage Dave. Maybe they didnt marry but just lived together :confused:

Kenneth's WW1 records has his mother as next of kin, WW2 records has Clara as next of kin, appears he enlisted in WW2 in VIC.

Thanks gibbo.

Kenneth was from Cheshire so not sure why they moved from NSW to Victoria. Clara moved back to NSW after his death.

Both privately cremated so no idea what denomination each followed. It would not have been difficult 1919 - 1924 to find a minister who would marry them.

Clara's parents buried in Presbyterian section at Northern Suburbs of Sydney.

Kenneth's father was connected with the Presbyterian Church in Burwood, Sydney.

If this is the right fella that puts him in VIC in 1921, dont know if Clara is with him or not. Just trying to work backward to see where they would or could have been to marry.

NAME: Kenneth James Gillies
RESIDENCE: 1921 - city, Wimmera, Victoria, Australia

Thanks gibbo.

Discharged 12 Jun 1917

His service record on the last page should have a stamp showing the Military District (it's a number 1 or 2 ... ) to show what state for discharge. 2 M.D. = NSW
