I have been compiling our family history and found a Godfrey Eric Leech as a Migrant Hostel Manager in the 1954 Electoral Rolls of Goulburn. I would be interested to find out more about Godfrey, is he the one I am searching for. He was born in India in 1908. His sister in law (my father's cousin) moved to Melbourne with her son and daughter. I found them in the Electoral Rolls too.

If anyone can help with information or better still a photo, it would be wonderful. Thank you

Hi,
I remember Godfrey Leech/Leach from back in those early hostel days but can't help you any further sadly.My late husband would have known more .As soon as I saw the name it rang a bell. Smile

I have since found out that Godfrey Leach was manager of the Colmslie Hotel, Morningside, Brisbane, Queensland. He died in 1960.
