      (only birth in England or Wales of a George Francis Lavender who could have married in 1919 was born Burton RD in q4 1869; not a fit with data for this one. Online tree shows he was b 15 Oct 1881 in Wellington, New South Wales, Australia - citing Australian birth index - convincing)

      Living at Monte Video at the time of his marriage, I don't know if he had been convalescing himself or working with those who were.

      There is information about the ANZACs in Weymouth including Monte Video on the BBC website and also here.
    Died 30 Dec 1967 
    • Date from gravestone which shows he was aged 86 when he died; stone in memory of Maisie on the same plot showing it was the right George Francis Lavender.

      Details from marriage PR entry (image on FMP, viewed 2 April 2019) and report in the East Kent Gazette (31 May 1919, p1, col. 1):
      "Lavender - Goatham - May 17th, 1919, at
      Bredgar Church, by the Rev. H. S. Aiken,
      George Francis, A.M.F., of Richmond, N.S.W.,
      and Maisie, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
      Walter Goatham, Dean's Hill, Bredgar."

      How did George and Maisie meet? - I wonder if Maisie, like her mother, was a nurse and worked with the Australians in Weymouth. If you know I'd love to hear. With both of their fathers being farmers they would have something in common, though rather different in age. The PR gives George's age at marriage as 34 but he appears to have knocked a few years off, actually being nearly 38, twice Maisie's age.
