Hello,

NSW Marriage 12488/1927 POWELL WILLIAM G A - MILLS DORIS J - WOOLLAHRA

I can't find a notice in TROVE.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Thursday 11 December 1986 p.25
DEATHS
POWELL, Doris Jane.-December 9, 1986, at hospital, Picton, late of Cadia Street Kogarah, beloved wife of William (deceased). Loved by all her family. Aged 97 years.

Looking for the birth reg for Doris. Can't find one in Qld., NSW, Vic., or WA.

Regards,

Dave

Dave we might not be looking for a MILLS birth for Doris.

She was born around 1889 so she would have been 38 when she married Powell so possibly a marriage before.

Yes, that is possible.

Marriages in NSW omitting those with the middle initial not J:

14215/1911 MILLS HERBERT F - HALL DORIS - PARRAMATTA

813/1925 MILLS ROLAND M M - BUCKLEY DORIS - REDFERN

Can't find a death for Roland.

This death is a long way from Parramatta:

16086/1913 MILLS HERBERT F - THOMAS - FANNY - ALBURY


Birth 4129/1886 MILLS HERBERT F - THOMAS M A - FANNY - BALMAIN

Thanks gibbo. :) Oops :D A bit late. Powell is a very common name.

That might fit although William and Doris were buried in Congregational Woronora. A few of the POWELLs from Ireland were RC but most were not.
