Hello Stuart. I am a grandson of the above couple, and would like to correct some of your information on your site about them. Minnie was born 22/11/1895. Died at Taree 19/3/1984. Sidney paul Ravell born 4/11/1898. Died at Forster 22/6/1956. Both cremated at Beresfield. I don't have much information on the first Ravells to Forster, and wonder if you have more. Thanks Gary Hayes

I am the grand daughter of Henry Charles Ravell and Vera Clemence Coaldrake and have noticed that you have my grandfathers year of death as 1974 aged 86. He actually passed away in 1978 or 1979. I'm leaning more towards 1979 as I recall he was 91 at the time. Also not mentioned are their other children, Gwendoline Beauchamp Ravell, Shirley Beauchamp Ravell and my father William George Beauchamp Ravell (b. 12/9/1925 - d. 24/9/1973 aged 48). Vera did pass away in 1974. She was already ill with cancer when my father died and only survived him by a few months. My aunty Shirley is still living and as far as I know Gwen is also still alive but I don't know for sure. Regards Ruth Lievesley (nee Ravell)
