It took place at Parish/Church/Congregation - ST. AUDOEN [sic] Area - DUBLIN (COI)

Informant got the mother wrong:

Death 4335/1919 JONES EMMELINE - JOHN - ELLEMINE - GOULBURN

Goulburn Evening Penny Post (NSW : 1881 - 1940) - Thursday 2 January 1919 p.2
OBITUARY.
Mrs. Emmeline Jones, widow of the late Mr. Wm. Jones, Victoria House, Goulburn ...

Probably this death:

3573/1871 PEPPER HENRY - JAMES - MARY - GOULBURN
 
Not according to the baptism records.

Bridget is from Wicklow not Dublin and is RC not CE.

It seems to say Victoria could not read or write - it has a '-' not a 'do' in that column.

I can't see her death or a remarriage.

Thanks gibbo.

Some of those records on FS are crazy. That church is at Prospect not near Blacktown. I have several in my tree who are buried at that church.
