Looks like an error in my tree but not sure yet which bit is wrong.

An error in the NAA. ? His service record image has pob as Lewisham, Cumberland, N.B.

Address as The Haven, Station st, Fairfield, NSW. Occ. Carpenter.

This is correct.

NSW Marriage 6634/1892 MORRISON JOSEPH - CRAPP NORAH E - REDFERN * 15 Oct 1892 * Registered as Morrison

1913 NSW Electoral Roll - CAMDEN - FAIRFIELD POLLING-PLACE
MORISON Joseph, Fairfield, leather merchant
MORISON Norah Elizabeth, Fairfield, domestic duties

The 1927 death is correct. Age 60 and parents Joseph & Jean.

Births Jun Qtr 1867
Morrison Joseph - Carlisle 10b 477

No death for a Joseph Morrison in NSW 1918 - 1969 with father = Joseph.

No birth in NSW 1865 - 1868 for a Joseph with father = Joseph.

I'm lost. Don't know if the service record fits or not.

Joseph and Norah not found in 1903 electoral roll so don't know if their address was Station st.
 
Thanks emeltee.

We can rule the Cumberland, England one out.

The service record could be correct. Lewisham in NSW is in the County of Cumberland, but very unusual for the county to be known and included. I've never seen the NSW county listed before in a service record.

But there is no birth in NSW index that fits.

Also can't confirm the father is the Joseph born in Glasgow. If correct we have Joseph a joiner with a son Joseph a leather merchant who has a son Joseph a carpenter.
