Looking for any Family Tree Information on Walter Frederick Kent

Classification: Query
Surnames: KENT
On behalf of my Dear Mother I am trying to find any ancestory or descendant information on Walter Frederick Kent who was her Father and passed when she was a very young child.. My Grandmother (Mrs Pearla Chandley) has just passed recently and although she spoke with much love for her 2nd husband and my mother's father she would never speak of his family, even when asked.. We respected her wishes BUT my Mother has always wanted to dearly know more about her father's history.. If anyone can help me I would be so happy for any information and hold it close and very dear to my heart, my mother would be so happy and overwhelmed with happiness if someone has some information and is willing to let me know.. My grandfather passed in Lara in 1943 and lays to rest at the Western Cemetery in Geelong, Victoria, Thankyou so much, Kindest Regards, Deanne

Hi Deanne,

I don't have access to the cds of the bdm indexes which might help more, but I did find:

At Geelong Western cemetery, I think in the same grave as Walter Frederick Kent is a Lena Mabel Kent, buried 26 Jan 1937

in the Victorian Government Gazette for the 25th March 1925:
Attendant, Inebriates' Institution, Lara
Walter Frederick Kent
to be an Attendant, General Division, Inebriats Institution, Lara, a vacancy having occured, and the Public Service Commissioner having certified that an appointment is required, that there is no person available and fit in the Public Service to be promoted or transferred to fill the vacant office, and that the person named is entitled, under
the provisions of the Public Service Act 1915 to be appointed to fill such vacancy for 6 months.

Hello Pam,

Thankyou so much for taking the time to help me find some wonderful history for my Mother and Myself...

She will be so grateful to everyone that has helped and so generously taken their time to help me do this, I would not have known where to start so thankyou so much, Kindest Regards, Deanne

Hi Alison
I am interested in George Garraway Burgess. Where was he born? Is it Garraway or Gannaway?.
I decend from the Garraways of Kew, and interestingly, my family has links to surname Ricketts in the Gloucestershire area during the 1700s, and later to surname Burgess in Somerset in the 1870s.

Hi garrawayfamily,
There may be transcription errors. The only way to find out would be to order the certificates.
George Gannaway BURGESS m Emma Ann RICKETTS 1854 #2010
George Gannaway Burgess b 1876 Geelong - George Gannaway BURGESS and Emma RICKETTS # 9675

George Garraway BURGESS d 1910 aged 86 Kew parents unknown # 9522

George Gannaway BURGESS m Emma Matilda FARRAR 1920 # 4082

George Gannaway KENT d 1964 aged 67 Geelong - Ernest Edward KENT and Amelia Ann BURGESS # 17875

Are you talking about Kew in Melbourne or England ?
The marriage certificate of George and Emma should have their birthplaces on it.
let me know if you would like any more help.
regards
Alison
