Something is not right.

Death 14496/1936 SCHOFIELD JANE - (MORRIS) 65 YRS AUBURN AUBURN * 21 Sep 1936

Why Morris ? If that's correct her maiden name was Morris. Or it's the wrong death?

Death for William Henry Schofield. No death with parents John & Bridget??

A death with matching parents??

NSW Death 7051/1919 SCHOFIELD JANE - JOHN - ELIZABETH - MANLY

SCHOFIELD Jane Death notice 03JUN1919 Death late of Narrabeen and Liverpool Plains Sydney Morning Herald 05JUN1919

DEATHS
