I'm trying to find out what happened to my cousin Alan F Stephenson & his family in Australia.

Alan was born in 1913 in Ulverston, Lancashire, England. In 1935 he married Ellen Doyle, born in Ashton-under-Lyne in 1913. They had three children. William F in 1936, Anthony A in 1938, Judith M in 1942.

Alan was a pianist/organist who travelled for Wurlitzer. I know that he played the organ at The London Hotel, Elizabeth Street, Melbourne. I have an undated newspaper clipping of him playing there on the occasion of the "celebration of the 10 o'clock closing" but I don't know exactly when that was but understand that Victoria extended pub closing hours from 6 to 10 o'clock in 1966.

I last saw Alan in England in 1981.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
