wow there were 2,000 immigrants on that voyage, largest ever.
In 1954 he and Lily were living at 9 Tribe St, Sunshine, Victoria.
He must have moved to Ferntree Gully later. Do you know if he had a brother called William Victor or sister called Jessie 1877-1964? they were both born in Rochdale, Lancashire, and died in Queensland, Australia. It would be nice if he did then I could tell you his parents.

Thanks for reply. Lily and Frank went to Stawell in 1949 and then to Enford-Melton area in 1950. Sunshine 1953. Were in Lalor for 1954 census.Went to The Basin area before Boronia.I Don't know any more details on him. Guess I will have to check census 1911 UK or get his wedding certificate.

Gee thanks Noggin for all those records.
1911 one is my Frank as I have just found out he was born in 1907.
His father was Benjamin (born Rochdale)and Mother Ann Shuttleworth born Bell, in Oldham.
The wedding 1894 is correct. Thank-you.
Not sure on the others as one mum is Mary Ann and another Mary Jane but Edward is Ben's dad and James is Ann's dad.
1891 is incorrect as siblings not correct but thank-you.
1881 and 1871 - one is not right as no Emma in 1871 and should be in 1881.
I will have to check out more census'and a marriage for Edward and Mary.
Appreciate all your help.
