Thanks Geoff.

Different address for Sabina and Robert so can't be sure. There are several Robert Andersons in that part of Sydney.

Search function for A&G Rookwood is still off-line. Funeral notice for 1916 Robert has CofE Rookwood and that for Sabina just says Necroplis.

Something strange here:

Birth 7297/1885 ANDERSON EADITH - ROBERT - RACHAEL S - GLEBE ** 9 May

Death 34399/1962 ANDERSON EADITH - ROBERT - RACHAEL SA BINA - KATOOMBA ** 5 Oct

ANDERSON Eadith Death notice 06OCT1962 Death 72 at Adelaide, S.A., late of Glenelg, S.A. Sydney Morning Herald 08OCT1962 ??


Katoomba is in NSW, west of Sydney. That would be Macquarie:

Eadith Anderson 1958 New South Wales Macquarie

Thanks Geoff.

That might be on film but it's likely not to have Robert's father's name on it. Not all the details from the register were required to be sent to the Registrar General and the film records those forms not the page from the church register.

I can't find anything to confirm that's the right Robert.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Thursday 24 November 1898 p.1
Deaths.
ANDERSON.-November 22, at 82 Union-street, Erskineville, Sabina, the dearly beloved wife of Robert Anderson.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Tuesday 7 November 1916 p.6
DEATHS
ANDERSON.-November 6, 1916, Robert Anderson, of St. Columbkill, Albert-street, Petersham, aged 72 years. By request, no flowers.


All I can hope for is that the fiche at the library are not missing and that I can find Sabina and Robert buried together at CofE Rookwood.

I'll only get some of the extra details if I pay for a transcription. Even the 'full' record that the BMD holds does not contain every detail from the church register. NSW BMD never got around to taking ALL the details off the original registers back in the early 1920s, and never will return to complete the job.

William Henry is not with her and I can't find a death or funeral notice for him. I don't have him in E/R either so I have no address for him.

Death 12914/1942 ANDERSON WILLIAM HENRY - ROBERT - SABINA RACHAEL - REDFERN ** 25 May

William H Anderson

Marriage Date: 1906
Marriage Place: New South Wales

They can be found in the E/R's, he's an estate agent..

Thanks Geoff.

Oh. The sun is out again. :biggrin: Damn showers.

It seems it does not matter anyway. I have 4x Anderson and 2x Carr families in my tree and the links no longer exist, after a correction, to either William Henry or Lydia Emma.

I'll delete both of them.

Catch you later.

Dave
