This is possibly Emma Mary Davis who was born in 1871 in West Derby, Lancashire, the daughter of Captain James Davis and his wife Emma. She had at least three sisters: Florence Helen, Agnes Lilian and Effie Gertrude.

Miss E M Davis was a soprano in the Tasmanian Exhibition choir in 1891-92.

At the time of her death at the age of 71 on 6 Nov 1942, Emma Mary Davis was living with her sister, Florence Helen Broadley, at 23A Hillside Crescent. Florence's husband, John Wilfred Broadley, had died in 1930 and the sisters appear to have lived together after this time. Emma was buried at Carr Villa in Section B7 No. 390.
