Murrumbeena is an inner suburb of Melbourne near Oakleigh so was expecting Henty - Oakley in 1949.

All I have for Richard so far is 'Laen' from the above notice. NE of Minyip.

Lorna Bland ?

Is that 'Bland' a middle name or a surname? I can't find Lorna in the index for those years. What am I doing wrong?

I can't find a Lorna Bland or a birth if it is Lorna Bland Williams.

Dave
 
A middle name, Dave.. Lorna Bland Williams, I just assumed a dau or D-in-L? Probably a dau with that middle name.

Born same place as Myra..
