Not 100% accurate as it found a NICHOLAS - GRAY marriage.

It did find the two funeral notices.

Thanks Val.

Only the burial records found so far to point to date of death.

ROOKWOOD CEMETERY
NAME: Bertrand James Sands
AGE: 79
DEATH DATE: 9th October 1981
DENOMINATION: Catholic Mortuary 2 & 3
DETAILS: Section: Lawn 6, Row: 9, Grave: 310
INSCRIPTION: (None Stated)


No notice SMH p.25 Mon 12th ** Sat 10 Oct 1981 ends p. 106 but index on p. 49 has Funerals pp 139-140.

I asked at the State Library if I could put in a request to view the actual paper which is held in off-site storage. They could not even tell me if all the SMH had been destroyed to save storage costs or if they were still in storage.

I still don't know if pages are missing and the film is correct or if the paper is intact and some pages were not filmed.

Bertrand Sands was my Great Grandfather and Katharine Gray was my Great Grandmother. Grandad is buried in Rookwood and Grammy is buried at Field of Mars in Ryde. Grandad died before I was born and Grammy passed away in December 1999.

Hello and welcome to the Forum

Do you have a date of death for Katharine?

This is a side branch of my Sands family. I notice some records have Bertram and others Bertrand.
