Hello Heather,
There is a Charles Atkinson and Janet Langley buried in the Leamington Cemetery.
This Charles was buried in 1965 aged 82 making a birth year of around 1883/84.
Would that be your Charles and Janet?

Maybe start there and work backwards :)

Leamington Cemetery is in Cambridge, Waikato, New Zealand - just south of Hamilton

Hi allycat. thank you very much for your information about Hector Australia Langley and his family. I don't know too much about computers. I have tried the family tree of Thomas davidson and Mary Allison but when I get to the langleys cant get past Ann. will get my son to show me what to do when he comes over next. I have managed to contact a couple of famiy members from New Zealand and one of them was able to give me an awful lot of information about the family. He has been doing in for years and is really into it and he has traced back to William the conqueror and olaf Ling of Man and did a chart for me starting from them and ending up with Grandad(Hector Austrlia Langley) Wayne's mother wa one of Grandad sisters. Cant wait till I am able to get into that family tree you suggested . There is still a bit I want to find about the family for instance how my Grandfather and his famiky went to New Zealand. I know they went in 1905 but Wayne didn't know how. and I would be interested to know when Grandad and his brother Bill came back and how. I knew Grandad very well and used to talk to him for ages about his family but can't remember asking those Quewstions. Would also still like to find more people in the family in Australia and NZ and elsewhere. That beautiful photo of Grandad's grave. I have that. I have never been out to Charleville since Grandad but it is my greatest wish to vist out there again hopefully next year. Once again thank you for your information. If onky the Pankhurst side 0f the family was easy as the lANGLEYS. Heather

Hi allycat. Thank you for you last email. I had tried birth deaths Marriages NZ that is how I found out wsho Grandads sisters over there married and also his brother Fergus and as a result got in touch with wayne Twidle who is Bessies Grandson and has given me a lot of information. I have also been in touch with Eileen Saunders one of Grandads brother Fergus granddaughters. I have not been able to get in touch yet with any one from Charlotte and Jenny's family yet.. I have found out who Jenny married. I must have a look at both the Langley Family and NZ Genealogy Forums. It is nice that you are finding out so much information for me. I never ever dreamt that I would ever get in touch with anyone of the Relatives from NZ, if only Grandad and Mum was alive to see it. Heather
