I too am a Hedley and live in Perth, Western Australia. I was doing some research on my family tree and came across your message - it was a big surprise, but a good one! My parents are both from West Sussex but my grandfather, William Hedley is from Newcastle. My parents moved to Australia about 30 years ago. I don't know of any ofthe names you were mentioning but I haven't actually started tracing far enough back yet. Anyway, I hope you get this message and haven't lost hope of contacting any Hedleys in Perth! Hope to hear from you.
