I am the youngest of John Edmund Yardley's children (my brother John has briefly replied to you).
As you will see from his reply, my father is still living and funnily enough about a month ago I decided to try to create a family tree.
My Grandfathers name was John William Yardley, dob 1.12.1893.He was married to Phoebe Phips and they had eight children:
2.Albert Frederick (your Father)
4.John Edmund (my Father)
6.Hilda Victoria Stro (nee Yardley)
8.Betty Diana Hudson (nee Yardley)
As you rightly say, apart from my father all other living relatives are in Australia, however,most of the original children have passed away leaving only Victor and Betty alive.
Victor has three children, David, Phillip and Alison.
Betty has two children, Steven and Heather.
As I said above, I am the youngest of Eddies' children, my other siblings are:
Marjorie Elizabeth Mills (nee Yardley) now living in USA, two children: Jennifer and Ian
Valerie Billington (nee Yardley), two children: Mark and Susan (each having one child)
Jillian Sanders (nee Yardley), two children: Karen and Lorraine
John Yardley, married no children
Jane Davies (nee Yardley), three children: Kate, Stuart and Caroline.
If you would like me to fill in some more gaps then please contact me either by e-mail or phone on 01970 828626.
Hope this is of some help to you - maybe you would like to share your findings with me.
