Hi Geoff,

I didn't expect her to die so young and reading the funeral notice makes it very sad.

Thank you for finding the article for me. Laura lived until she was 96 but still looking for John 's death.

Hi,

John died in 1929. Found his funeral notice in the Trove.
That was a good find...

I couldn't find it in the index, perhaps this may be why, it appears to be a couple of miles or so from Bassendean...

John Tounsend
Death Place: Western Australia
Registration Place: Swan, Western Australia
Registration Number: 41

No date, so not conclusive...
