Notes for Thelma Hilda LUMLEY
From Bill Jessup. She married Alva, son of Philip Benjamin.

Her birth is recorded in the registration of births, Victoria where she is shown as Thelma Hilda, daughter of Benjamin Samuel Cohen and Edith Elizabeth.

Henry Lumley advises that there was one child of the marriage, Joan, who died aged 20. Also that Thelma was the first woman editor on the London Daily Mail and wrote as Thelma Cohen. She might not have changed her name prior to her marriage, therefore she should be Thelma Cohen throughout.
