DEATHS
GRAHAM.-November 23, 1938, at her daughter's residence, 15 Oxford street, Belmore, Florence Hannah Graham, loved mother of William, Arthur, Isabella, Florence and Alexander, aged 62 years.

That means Alexander junior was born between 1915 and 1919 if children are listed in order of birth. Florence Hannah didn't remarry.

Looking for the death of Florence junior born 1915 and death of Alexander junior.

Not 100% sure yet 1918 is the right death for Alexander senior. Lots in Sydney.

Thanks Geoff.

It's interesting the trees don't even have Alexander junior.

We seem to be stuck in November 1938 where Florence junior and Alexander junior are mentioned in the death notice.
