I am interested in finding any information relating to my father, Clarence Roy Henry born 16th February 1910 in Singleton.
I unfortunately have no other information relating to my father (and/or his parents, siblings or relatives), but I am hoping that somebody reading this may be able to assist or at the very least point me in the right direction.

Thank you for the information you have been able to supply at this stage. I find myself in an unusual position of not knowing anything about my father's history or heritage (Clarence Roy Henry) as he passed away in 1972 when I was just 8 years of age. My mother (for what ever reason) does not talk of my father and this is the first piece of information I have.
I have been told that he lived in Grenfell (New South Wales) when he met my mother and then moved to Queensland after they were married, living in Gayndah, Nundah, Kingaroy, Dalby and finally Toowoomba.
As I now have 3 children of my own and given that my wife has a long line of relatives (uncles, cousins etc.) still living, I thought it time to find out more about my father's side of the family and if possible make contact with any relatives I may have, or at the very least try and piece together something of my father's history.
I am the youngest son of Clarence Roy Henry, with 2 elder brothers and 2 elder sisters, whom I am also sure would like to know more. The information you have provided is at least a pleasant start and raises some hope of filling in the gaps.
Admin has this persons email address if they want to make a contact.

Since reading the information you supplied on the message board of the Singleton Family Historical Society, I have been able to do some searching in the Family History Index of New South Wales (obviously restricted by the dates of 1905 for births and 1945 for deaths & marriages).
I have found the following which you may be able to confirm as being accurate:
1) My father was born on the 16th February 1910,
2) Ernest E HENRY (grandfather) was born in 1868 to Patrick & Ann J Henry (Maitland),
3) Ernest E HENRY (grandfather) married Minnie S Dorrington (grandmother) in 1894,
4) Frank E HENRY, Milton C HENRY and Charles W HENRY and Ernest HENRY were all born in Singleton, as was my father,
5) Ernest E HENRY (grandfather) died in Singleton in 1935,
6) Minnie S HENRY (nee Dorrington) either died after 1945 or in another State,
7) Ernest HENRY (brother to my father) born 1907 also shows up as deceased in the same year 1907. I can only assume if this is correct that he died at birth or within the same year,
As a means of further cross reference I found these entries for marriages;
8) To identify the correct relative one of the following may be correct, either Milton C HENRY married Alma H Pigott in Byron Bay (NSW) in 1926, or Milton C HENRY married Emily M Wilson in Waverley (NSW) in 1932,
9) Records indicate that Charles W HENRY married Jessie M HANKINSON in Manly (NSW) in 1930,
10) No marriage was found for my father Clarence Roy HENRY to my mother Audrey Catherine PLOWES up to or prior to 1945. I gather that this means that they either married in NSW after 1945 or in another state.
I can only gather now, that in order to trace further information I will need to apply for a copy of the marriage certificate of my father and mother in NSW, and if no trace then possibly the same application through QLD.
Thanks again for your help so far, it is very much appreciated.
