I am looking for any family of Albert Victor Yeates arrived Melboune from UK 1923
Date of Birth, Parents etc???
Ok, I assume you are looking for (and this is what you should have supplied):
Albert Victor Yeates b abt 1904 Wootton, Isle of Wight, Hampshire (registration Q#2 1904 district Isle of Wight, Hampshire)
- Son of James Edward Yeates, a Pension Warder in the civil service and Rose Hatcher
- His 3 surviving siblings in 1911: Leslie James, Rupert John and William Walter
With this information I could find his death in Queensland. He died on 22/2/1987
(you can now order his death certificate from here: https://www.familyhistory.bdm.qld.gov.au/)
Thank you. Date of birth 6/4/1904. You have his parents correctly although the notice of his death gives his mother's name as 'Fletcher' not 'Hatcher'. He disembarked from the SS Bendigo at Melbourne 2/10/1923 and then vanishes. I believe he married and had a daughter 'May' and at one point lived in Cowra.
Albert's Mothers maiden name is Hatcher when he's born and when James and Rose marry in 1899 it is Hatcher as well. And, what/where is this notice of his death?
I have not been able to find a marriage for him in the available BMD indices. As there are more people with the same name, I really think you'll need to order his death certificate. Hopefully it will contain that information.
Thank you once again for your [very prompt] reply. I'm not sure where I found about his death - I was browsing Australian websites and, stupidly, didn't make a note of where I found it. I thought BMD only covered the UK and I don't think I will find much on his death certificate except perhaps some clue if it gives details of who registered the death. I am unfamiliar with Australian certificates and how, being in the UK, I would pay
As a follow up to our last chat - Albert's father James Edward was a Prison Warder not Pension Warder and the site I found Albert's death on was 'https://www.familyhistory.bdm.qld.gov.au/details/2c5a8aded89fb78f72431a65b65d3f43e1f47dd13d3eecde6e87e38441bde370
It is amazing really that a person can disembark in Australia in 1923 and there is no record of him until his death in 1987
