  • Joseph died on board a ship at age c 38 on the way to New Zealand (?TBC?) to find a new lif for the family. The believed cause is heart attack (though there is possible connection with a fall (push ??)). He was travelling alone and left Doris her mother and younger brother (Harold) alone. This followed period of hosptal tretatment for Maud for Rheumatic fever (during which her cooking business failed).
