Why were you looking for relatives? I am researching him. He was the only survivor of a crash about half a mile from where I live, would like to trace relatives

Barraclough is one of my direct lines and I was researching sideways on my large tree for any connections and found:

Marriage 7887/1953 WARD ROBERT DOUGLAS - BARRACLOUGH SHIRLEY ANNE - SYDNEY * 6 Jun 1953

Not in CofE PR database - Can't find a notice in Trove
