NSW Marriage 963/1874 BLACKBORROW HENRY - GARDNER HARRIET - SYDNEY

The Sydney Morning Herald - Thursday 10 July 1919 p.6
DEATHS
THORNLEIGH [sic].-July 9, 1919, at Sydney, Lilian, dearly loved wife of the late Charles Thornleigh [sic] and beloved mother of May, also dearly loved daughter of Mrs. H. Blackborrow, aged 34 years.

It would seem that Harriet was alive as of that date but Henry was not.

Looking for deaths for Henry and Harriet.

Thanks,

Dave

Thanks Geoff.

I was gardening between showers but now it's solid rain. :biggrin:

The 1917 notice mentions Ben and Florrie and Annie. Daughter Lilian died in 1919 so she was not mentioned. ??? One daughter was Florence May:

1903 NSW Electoral Roll - LANG - MARRICKVILLE POLLING-PLACE
BLACKBORROW Florence May, Petersham-road, music teacher
BLACKBORROW Harriet, Petersham-road, domestic duties


Where is the death reg for Henry for 1915?

Or a reason for no reg such as an inquest.

NSW BMD worked for me. :D

Death 3550/1915 BLACKBURROW HENRY - JOHN - MARY A - LIVERPOOL

Not in Ryerson under either spelling.
