William Francis Fincher was born in Victoria, Australia in 1867.  He married Elena Mow Fung, I think in Hong Kong – she also was born in Australia.  They had five children, of whom two died in infancy.  The other three were Edward (Teddy) who served in the HKVDC and was a POW in Japan, Ernest who was a bombardier in the HKVDC and was killed in action, and May who married A.E.P.Guest.   I believe William Fincher remained in the Sanitary Department for over 25 years after his appointment in 1898. He died in Hong Kong in 1938.
