According to his Attestation Papers when he enlisted in the Australian Army in 1916, WILLIAM BROADHURST was born in Stockport, Cheshire, England in 1876. (He stated that his father was William, who,in 1916, was living in "Northern Etchell, near Manchester".) He died in 1960 and was buried at Nabowla.
In 1916 he was already married to EMILY, and had 3 children. EMILY died in 1938, and was buried at Nabowla. It appears that he then married ELIZABETH MARGARET (who was probably more than 65 at this time.) She died in 1956 and was buried at Nabowla.
Also buried at Nabowla are JOHN WILLIAM, born 1904, "son of William & Emily", and LUCY JACOBS, born 1901, "nee BROADHURST". I believe that there was also another daughter, and there may be others after that.
I am seeking information on WILLIAM LANGLEY, born c. 1878, died 05 April 1926 and buried at Nabowla. His wife, ELIZABETH LOUISA SMITH, was born c. 1875, and died 18 Jan. 1941 at Launceston and buried at Nabowla. She was the daughter of WILLIAM & ELIZA JANE SMITH. William & Elizabeth had (at least) 4 children: 2 sons & 2 daughters.The daughters married A. GRIFFITHS and W. BROADHURST (both of Targa). The sons were V.(possibly VERNON REUBEN of Launceston) and M. of Winnaleah.
