Thanks Geoff.

There is more than one William (and not the same family) and I'd say the one who married Sarah is not the one with NOK Beryl.

You can see from the 1954 E/R how many there are although it's possible there is some overlap with one or two x William moving address during 1954.

This is the one with NOK Beryl:

Birth 20101/1886 BECK WILLIAM - MAURICE C - LILLIAN R - EDEN

William Bap 10 Dec 1886 CofE Bega - Charles Morwick & Lilian Malvine


Enlisted Sydney 16 Aug 1915 - S/N 3690 1st Bn - 29 yrs Farmer - NOK father Beck M C living at Cloran ? [Clovass] via Casino, NSW - Embarked Sydney RMS 'Mooltan' 11 Dec 1915 - Served in ... - Returned to Australia ...- Discharged 28 Mar 1919

Maurice is an error and Morwick Charles is more often Charles M.


Death 8338/1958 BECK WILLIAM 72 YEARS LIVERPOOL SYDNEY ** 16 May 1958

Not in Ryerson - Can't find a notice in SMH

So no luck with a death or funeral notice.

Yep, found most of that, Dave. Was trying to see how Beryl fitted in at that stage :rolleyes:

What occupation for William in 1937?

I was wondering if a match for occupation could be made with one of those in 1954.

Thanks Geoff.

None of those 1954 Divisions cover Liverpool where he died or Marrickville where he enlisted the second time. Something wrong with the service record dates because the periods overlap.
