Edwin Birchall b 1907 - England to Australia?

Grandad Edwin Birchall b 1907 Barton on Irwell district of manchester/Lancashire. Family moved to Neath South Wales early 1910's. he then moved back to Manchester to live with his aunty Janet Jones (nee Thompson - his Mother's sister) in Worsley. he married our Nan Gladys Ellen Price in 1935 shortly before his daughter Glenys was born. The marriage didnt work out and he left the family home in 1945 - some say for another woman(!). He was last seen in 1946 when he visited Neath to be at his sisters funeral and wasnt seen again by any family member.

We have checked all the marriage and death indexes in England & Wales but have not found any other marriage or death for him in the UK.

We have been on various forums asking for people to search their countries records for us and we have finally come up with a lead.

There was an Edwin Birchall, husband of Ethel that died in 1990 Australia aged 83 (this would tie in with our edwin's birth)His death was in Adelaide SA. Can anyone help confirm this - or can anyone check immigration records for us.

If anyone out there knows anything at all about Edwin PLEASE contact us.
