What is meant by the term 'extended family'?

In context to the protection of children &  their caring the term extended family is defined in section 2(11) of  the Children Act  2013 likely as follows:


“extended family” means the family of paternal grandfather, paternal grandmother, maternal grandfather, maternal grandmother, paternal uncle, paternal aunt, husband of father's sister, father's sister, mother's brother, wife of mother's brother, maternal aunt, husband of mother's sister, brother, wife of brother, sister, husband of sister, or the family of such blood relative or any relative by such kinship

What do you think  is this definition is alright?
With best regards and Thanks in advance,
