Good Afternoon

I am trying to track down a Giuseppe Novaglia born in Bianzone Italy in May 1872.

I believe he arrives in Australia around 1900 and he was a miner.

His wife Adelaide Novaglia (née Castellanelli) remained in Italy with the family.

I have found some records of his arrival and it states on Adelaide's naturalisation documents that he died in Wooroloo 1928, however I am unable to find a death certificate or cemetery records.

Any suggestions?

Michelle,  Are you sure his wife stayed in Italy as there is a record in Karrakatta Cemetery in Western Australia for an Adelaide NOVAGLIA with next of kim Giuseppe listed

Michelle,  Found this site which may explains about burials of patients from the Wooroloo Sanitorium

Hi Elizabeth
Yes you are correct his wife did come to Australia later once the children had grown up.
She came to Australia and lived with her daughter Maria and son-in-law Giuseppe Napolitano who all lived in Merredin.
On Adelaide's naturalisation records it states her husband died in 1928 in Wooroloo.
But there are no RBDM or cemetery records.
Many thanks
