I'm rather new to family History research. My father Andrew Gordon Thompson DOB: 26/01/1934 at Lidcombe NSW passed away on 16/08/2008 at Dubbo NSW. My mother Ellen Lenore Thompson (Nee Paul) DOB 19/09/1937 at Southport QLD has dementia & I am one of her 5 daughters and her EPOA. During COVID I started going through all mum & dads photo albums and discovered that they hadn't made any notes on most of the photos at all and we have now missed the boat on getting mum's assistance in doing this. It was from there that I started to get interested in their service history in the WRAAF & RAAF which I have now obtained their service records and have uncovered some not so nice things like a trail of bad debts and bankruptcies etc I have investigated my mothers family history which was rather easy and I obtained BD&M certificates easily at great expense. My fathers family history is not as easy, its very messy ... I have this week discovered that Dad's mother Annie Eliza Thompson (Nee Yendall) passed away quite tragically at the age of 35yrs. She had attempted to abort her 3rd child in-utero and died in the bathtub doing that on 19/3/1939 at Kelvin Grove Brisbane QLD. There were many newspaper articles to that effect which I easily located. I am now looking for perhaps the coroners report of her death which was concluded on the 19/05/1939. I have finally located Annie's burial place an unmarked grave in Toowong Cemetery Brisbane. Her family were displeased with her it seems as she was attempting to leave her husband when she discovered she was carrying another of his children and was unable to cope financially with the two she already had my father aged 5 and his brother Frank Stewart aged 3yrs. I would really like to know more about her and I have noone to really ask. I located some of her parents details and their burial sites at Waverley Cemetery Sydney - John George Yendall YOB: 1884 DOD:19/06/1958 & Mary Jane Yendall (Nee McGrath) YOB: 1885 DOD: 01/12/1948 ... I have not been able to locate when they immigrated to Australia from Middlesborough Yorkshire England which is Annies place of birth sometime in 1903. I don't know for sure how many siblings Annie had maybe two - John George Yendall DOB ? YOD: 1966 and a sister Eva Lavinia Mackintosh (Nee Yendall) DOB: ? YOD: 1980. Today I was attempting to locate Annie & her families immigration records to Australia from the UK ... date & ship etc. Annies death certificate states that she lived in NSW for 10 years then QLD for 6 years following her marriage in March 1933 to Francis/Frank Stewart Thompson in Randwick NSW. I stumbled upon a passenger manifest for the Oronsay which docked in Sydney or Brisbane on 27/1/1940 and it lists my father as Master A Yendall Instead of Thompson & his brother Frank as Yendall also along with their grandparents John & Mary Yendall. I have not been able to locate when they left Australia for this trip following the death of their mother. Are outgoing passenger manifests avail somewhere also? Basically I guess I am hoping for some help to locate more information on the families immigration to Australia, some DOB for the family, some pictures if at all possible, and Annies coroners report or more specific police reports of her death. I spent hundreds of $$$ on the BDM certs for my mothers family but because of the diversity of this family I was hoping not to spend so much money and wondered if there were less expensive avenues to pursue this family history information first. Thank you so much for reading my ramblings and I appreciate any assistance offered.
