Hi Lyn,

I looked for Edith GORMLEY, but did not have any success. I found an Enis GORMLEY, who apparently was born in Hobart, Tasmania, about 1870.

She appears to have had three sons, but all died young.

She had the following son, in SA in 1892:
1892 500/360 GRAHAM Walter Douglas Walter Otto GRAHAM Enie GORMLEY Adelaide

This son died in (possibly Gerladton), WA, in 1897:
GRAHAM WALTER DOUGLAS Age 4 Father: WALTER VALENTIN Mother: GORMLEY ESSIE Place Birth: ADELAIDE 1249 Year: 1897

She had a second son, Armetriding GRAHAM / GORMLEY, in 1898, in Gerladton, WA. No father, mother was Enie GORMLEY.
Armitriding GRAHAM, died in 1898, aged 3 months.

Enis GORMLEY / GRAHAM then married in 1898, in Gerladton.

Groom: FRITH CYRIL ARMETRIDING
Bride: GRAHAM ENIS JOSEPHINE
Location: GERALDTON
Rego No: 720
Year: 1898

Cyril Armetriding FRITH had earlier, became a Solictor, Attorney and Proctor, in July, 1891 in Melbourne.

They then had a son, Francis FRITH, in 1899, in Gerladton. He died in 1900, at Geraldton, aged 13 months.

FRITH FRANCIS COKAYNE
Father: CYRIL ARMETRIDING
Mother: GORMLEY ENIS JOSEPHINE
Location: GERALDTON
Year: 1899

Enis GORMLEY / FRITH died in 1900, in (possibly Geraldton), WA.

FRITH ENIS JOSEPHINE
Age: 30
Father: JOHN F
Mother: UNKNOWN
Birth Place: HOBART TAS
Year: 1900

But no sign of any other sons, to Enis GORMLEY.


I had a look at the following WW1 soldier. Grong Grong, is very close to Narrandera. His enlistment, however, states that he was born at Cooma, NSW.

Date of enlistment from Nominal Roll: 19 January 1915

No good matches in any of my research, so far.
