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
