Thanks Geoff.

Burials a bit odd. I have not yet found anything in Trove for William.

Perhaps Lavinia Gribble married a John Harris ?? Don't think they belong in my tree.

If this is correct from a tree then I have the right burial record for William. Then it is odd that Mary is in a different section of the cemetery.

"Died 20 Oct 1885 Armstrong St, Ballarat, Vic." ?

I've not been able to confirm that. No Will/Probate on PROV.

The year is ok Geoff but 3x William Harris died that year and I have nothing yet that points to that burial.

Now I have just found two others in that grave.

MARTHA HARRIS 1 Buried 11/01/1866
WILLIAM HARRIS 58 Buried 21/10/1885
