Thanks Val.

I'll have to swap hard disks and boot on to the old Win 7 and try the SMH archive. It won't work on my Windows 10 and wide-screen monitor so I can't check that 1955 notice or several others in my list.

Thanks Geoff.

I checked ESMP and there is no record on the site for Henry.

Woronora and ESMP have been combined. The old ESMP site had separate look up for burials and cremations. Now there is only one input option.

I'm off to the supermarket now.

LITTLE Clara Florence Death notice 19MAY1959 Death 75 late of Randwick Sydney Morning Herald 20MAY1959

Clara Florence Little 19/05/1959 20/05/1959 Ashes Collected by Applicant

I just tried the SMH archive again and can't read the text.

Now I find the last windows update turned my monitor driver back to a 'Generic PnP' and Windows update insists I have the latest driver.

Ok, now I have the right driver and it made no difference. I've tried 6 different screen resolutions and still can't read the text. I've zoomed in and out and it makes no difference.

Births Jun Qtr 1850
Whiddon Thomas Downes - Shoreditch 2 450 mmn Downes

I can't find that Thomas in 1851.

No Whiddon & Downes marriage found in England.

Births Sep Qtr 1850
Whiddon Thomas Francis - Newton Abbot 10 132 mmn -

Several possible for Mary Ann Buck in England.

If father is Alfred as per death reg then I can't match a marriage for Alfred with a mmn for Mary's birth.

BUCK, MARY ANN - STONELL

No Buck & Stonell marriage found in England.
