Ruth,   What sort of information are you looking for - parents names/marriage?

Do you know which state he was born in or any other details and I might be able to assist

Ruth,  I found his death in Sydney in 1948 on the online NSW BDM Index

Leonard Joseph GAZZARD

died 1948

father:  Joseph

mother:  Mary

registration No. 6862/1948

Cemetery:  Eastern Suburbs Memorial Park in Sydney

You might need to get a copy of his death certificate for further information as to his birthplace/ any marriage/parents details etc  - if you know where he was born I can check it as each state has separate records or he may have been born in another country

Ruth,  If the age on his death notice is correct (Ryerson Index) then he was born c. 1882 (not 1877)
