NSW Death 5126/1926 RILEY JOHN - JOSEPH - ELIZABETH - SYDNEY

Not in Ryerson - Can't find a Death notice in TROVE

The Sydney Morning Herald - Monday 5 April 1926 p.5
FUNERALS
RILEY.-The Relatives and Friends of Mrs. CATHERINE RILEY and FAMILY are invited to attend the Funeral of her late dearly-beloved HUSBAND and their FATHER, John, to leave 63 Darghan-street, Glebe, THIS (Monday) MORNING, at 8.45 o'clock, for Presbyterian Cemetery, Rookwood, via Mortuary Station.

RILEY.-The Relatives and Friends of Mr. and Mrs. ARTHUR GANDON, Mr. ALICK GANDON are invited to attend the Funeral of their late dearly beloved BROTHER-IN-LAW, John Riley, to leave 63 Darghan-street, Glebe, THIS (Monday) MORNING at 8.45 o'clock, for Presbyterian Cemetery Rookwood.
F. W. HARTLEY.

Presbyterian 4B 0005529 RILEY John 03 Apr 1926 ?

A tree has John's death as 2 April. I'm wondering if anything can be found to prove it is 2 or 3 April.

Also, I have no birth date or place for John.

Im inclined to think he wasnt born locally, no Riley names in his death notices.

Do we have a occupation for John?
