Lawrence William ‘Spider’ Gallot and Evelyn

Lawrence was the eldest son of William George II and Mary Gallot, born around 1889. He went on to become a registered carrier until he signed up with the 1st Auckland regiment of the NZEF.

Lawrence met and later married Evelyn.

Lawrence was wounded in Gallipoli on 28 October 1915 and taken to a hospital in Cardiff before returning home to Auckland until his death in 15 December 1935 aged 46.  This picture appeared in the Auckland Weekly News on July 6 1916.

Eva struggled to cope with life after her husband’s death and was moved from their home in Vernon St to an Auckland Mental Institution, until her death only 18 months later.

On May 27th 1937 the following notice appeared in the Auckland Herald newspaper;
“On May 24 at Auckland, Eva, beloved wife of the late Lawrence; age 67. Private interment at Waikumete Cemetary 11 a.m. today”
