Looking for relatives and any infomation on RAINEY from England

Query by Sadydee

I am looking for any relatives and/or any information on Violet Ada RAINEY born June 1875 who had a son Edwin George RAINEY born Mar 1914 in Lewisham London. Edwin G Rainey migrated to Australia when he was 14yrs old, so around 1928 he emigrated to Australia to live either with family or to work on a farm. Edwin shared the same surname as his Mother as the father's name was unknown, There is no father listed on the birth certificate.

Dear Sadydee, Once you have done all your groundwork for your family tree starting with yourself and working backwards, then you will be able to find out more on the RAINEYs in England.

The more information you collect, the better.

Q.Is there a father's name listed on Edwin George RAINEY's Death Certificate? Q.Did he die in 1974 NSW Registration No. 40298?

For starters, I did a bit of looking for you. You can request a copy of information held on your Edwin George RAINEY at the The National Archives of Australia for a small fee.

But basically it has Edwin George RAINEY born 5th March 1914 Lewisham, London, England. Next of kin's name is Thelma RAINEY. Looks like Thelma was his wife, and this was her 2nd marriage as she had first been married to a Thomas HOLLY. #

Purchase Death Cert of Thelma Irene RAINEY, died 1960 Wollongong NSW - parents John Beeston & Irene Edna HUTHNANCE.

Children of Edwin & Irene RAINEY. If you look at this link, it seems that Edwin & Irene RAINEY had two sons that died in the late 1930s, namely Edwin John RAINEY d 1937 Bellingen NSW; and Robert John RAINEY d 1941 Wollongong NSW.
