Arthur Sidney Ellis of Stourbridge (146130)
I am searching for my maternal grandfather Arthur Sidney Ellis born in either 1868 or 1872 in Stourbridge to unknown parents. He migrated to Victoria Australia in 1911 and met Evan Jean Alexander and they had four children between 1917 and 1926. They lived in Moonee Ponds Victoria until Arthur died in November 1928 of pneumonia. He is buried in the Fawkner Cemetery in the Church of England area. I have no further information on him or my maternal grandmother. According to records they did not marry. Their four children were put into orphanages in 1928 and their mother was not heard of again. I am very interested in any details of Arthur so if anyone has any information it would be greatly appreciated.
