Thanks Val.

I thought that one would be really tough.


Mayfield is Newcastle so that looks out.

Manly is a seaside suburb just north of Sydney.

Ok, Collaroy is just north of Manly.

Probate took a long time.

My grandfather's took 20 years.

Death WALL JOHN 11508/1949 JOHN - JANE SAUNDERS – MANLY

Normally in NSW index the maiden name is not included, so is that a middle name?

No marriage in NSW, Qld. or Vic. index.

A death for John senior. ?? Probably before 1907.


There are 11 cemeteries in Tweed Shire - Banner St is a cemetery not a home address.

WALL JANE SANDERS October 9, 1907 72 YEARS BANNER St, MURWILLUMBAH

Only other WALL

WALL CHARLES June 11, 1913 59 YEARS BANNER St, MURWILLUMBAH

Can't find a notice in Trove for Jane. I'd say she would have been living with one of her married daughters.
