Hi Paul,

You need to search here when you are looking for a catalogue entry on RecordSearch http://www.naa.gov.au/collection/search/index.aspx  (Search the Collection)

If you search for Walter HANCOCK, this is one of the results:


This person's DOB matches Wally's stats.  He married Amy TOWNER in 1926 in Sydney.

Quite a lot on TROVE:

Thanks Elizabeth, no West Terrace Cemetery is not the one, the sheet is very large and has so many names and numbers so maybe it is from overseas.

Hi Elizabeth

I need to upgrade my Grandfather's grave but have discovered that he is buried with a person by the name of Ellen Mary Eva Bohlin who maybe Ellen Mary Eva Westbury (maiden ) married name is gilby. The Funeral Director notes show she was married to my Grandfather Gustav for a short period of time but unable to locate a marriage certificate.To complete the headstone I need to talk to a relative to be sure I have the right person.



 I cannot continue with the upgrade of the grave until I can locate relatives.

Hi Elizabeth

Yes thank you for all the info. on Edward Hopewell. I thought I had replied but perhaps I did it incorrectly or just thought I had done it!!

His middle name of BRETLAND was his mothers maiden name. he was my godfather and cousin although I never really met him but my mother talked about him a great deal. In answer to one of your questions,  I am afraid I don't know which state they went to. Any further information would be appreciated.  Judith

Sorry about not getting back to you, our power went down and my desktop computer was in the middle of up dating saying do not turn computer off, it did....I lost my computer completely I think. I'm on my laptop now, and its like dialup. I would love to hear from you.

Kind Regards, Sandie (Adelaide)

No I did not Elizabeth. I had this info already through the search, but I am not sure where to go from here, there seems so much to look at and I'm not sure where to start?
