Hi Jean

Thanks for the reply. Through the on-line newspapers I have been able to trace the death notices for these two men so I have the names of their wives and in the case of John children & grandchildren. John was born in 1866 in Cardiff Wales & William 1870 in Cardiganshire Wales. Their father Benjamin died in 1875 after which both sons & their mother Ann vanish off the UK records but they were known to have come to Australia and the sons deaths have now been traced. I do not have copies of their death certificates as being based in the UK I think their are problems getting these through the Australian authorities. Their sister my GM stayed in the UK where she married my GF in 1881. I need to get access to the Australian Census records to see if I can trace them back from there.

Thanks for you advice much appreciated.
