Thank you for the information, interestingly it looks as though W S L Boulton's family joined him in Australia.
I had email from a shared reletative today who has traced their family back to W S L Boulton, they had a uncle who went to Australia who they never heard from again! I'll pass this information on. Many thanks.
In 2009 you sugested to my brother "I found your great grandfathers death date in Brisbane,he is listed on "Metropolitan Funeral Directors" index on 19/2/1956.
I woulsd ask some kind soul to scan his funeral notice and see what is mentioned regarding family."
How would I do this? I think my brother posted on GenForum but got no reply!
Would a death certficate but much help? in understanding what happened to John McCristal.
I've been on the funeral directors website, it looks as the business as grown from a small family firm to a much larger entity, though i will email them I think its this firm
