Thanks gibbo.

These were mostly miners so in the Hunter or Illawarra region.

24x Jones in my tree.

Something is not right. Thomas Jones married to Catherine. No son Alexander mentioned (d. 1940) ?

Only one death in 1923 in Newcastle region in the index.

NSW Birth JONES DANIEL 32125/1887 THOMAS - CATHERINE - LAMBTON

JONES THOMAS - - 13-09-1923
METHODIST No. 2 - PRIMITIVE, NW20, PRIMITIVE METHODIST-NW20-54
Sandgate Cemetery
https://nmclm.com.au/find-a-loved-one/?site_id=6037

Aged 63. Can't be the right one.

So the tree is wrong with the 1923 death.

A death for Thomas assuming born 1836 is correct.

29x Thomas Jones in Sandgate cemetery. Plus unknown number of cremations at Beresfield.

Link in post #6 to the notice in Trove. The death reg has district of registration as Merewether but the notice has Glebe = a Sydney suburb.

Hard to know if he actually died in Glebe and death registered in Merewether or if 'Glebe' is just an error in the notice.
