Hi Russell,

These two records may be for your James and you would have to pay to have them digitised if you can't vist the archives in person.  On the right hand side of the page see the 'request copy' link.

If you are not sure you should submit a request and give all the information you have and they should be able to positively identify him before you order the records.  If he always lived in Montague Street then it shouldn't be too difficult as his address should be on both those records.

I assume this is his death:

1967

B86392

James George SUE

Father: Go Yee

Mother: Wong See

Do you have his marriage certificate to get his parents' names?  Death information is not always reliable, whereas he would have provided the details on his marriage himself so more likely to be accurate.

1908

B6968

James George SUE

Florence Maud EMSLIE
