In Reply to: William Garlick by Cressida Toorenburg of 82777

Is this your father's WWII enlistment?

GARLICK NEIL : Service Number - 33667 : Date of birth - 11 Jan 1920 : Place of birth - BONDI WAVERLEY NSW : Place of enlistment - SYDNEY : Next of Kin - GARLICK R

He was a motor mechanic, 6' tall, they lived at Peak Hill.

His father Ray was born in Orange NSW in 1887 and died in 1970 in Parramatta district (reg 22739). He married Ruby E M PENDER in 1918 (Waverley 9681).

Ray's parents, John & Elizabeth, married in Carcoar NSW in 1874 (reg 2111). This certificate would be worth getting if you don't have it already.

Wm & Sarah married in 1840 in Penrith NSW (she is shown as WELCH) (reg V1840437 24B/1840). Very early records may not reveal much...

Sarah's obituary (death reg 14518 shows parents as James & Ann):

Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal, Wednesday 29 November 1899
Death of Mrs. Garlick. We regret to record tho death of Mrs. Sarah Garlick, a resident of Orange for the past 25 years, which took place on Saturday. She was a native of Dublin, and came to New South Wales at the age of 16 years. She married the late Mr. Garlick, of Penrith, who at one time conducted Colless' water-mill on the Nepean and afterwards had a nice home near St. Mary's. Mrs. Garlick was the mother of Mrs. John Carman, of Cudal, Mrs. Charles Whiley, of Spring Hill, whose son has gone to the war in South Africa, Miss Eliza Garlick, of Orange, Mr. John Garlick, of Grahamstown, near Blayney, Mr. William Garlick, farmer, of near Blayney, Mr. George Garlick, alderman and blacksmith, Molong, and Mr. Isaac Garlick, blacksmith and wheelwright, Trangie, besides having buried two sons and one daughter.
