Thanks gibbo.

NSW BDM have started adding district codes 001 = Sydney which covers many suburbs so not much help. More recent deaths have no code.

Over the years less and less detail is appearing on NSW death certs. A death in 2019 didn't even say if it was a burial or cremation. You used to get the name of the minister and the name of the undertaker and the names of the witnesses - nothing now.

Mr & Mrs E. C. Parker ??

Death for E. C. Parker after 1945 ?

Why no mention of R. E. Parker ?

NSW Deaths
PARKER RONALD EDWIN 1574/1988 JOHN - ESTHER 074 = Forbes

PARKER MELBA MARY 22123/1982 JOHN JAMES - ESTHER AGNES 001

NSW Birth PARKER RONALD E 21807/1914 JOHN - ESTHER - FORBES

Something is not right. Elizabeth Agnes born abt 1866 and Ronald born in 1914.

An error with the initial ?? E. C. = E. E. ?

NSW Death PARKER ERNEST EDMUND 1762/1963 EDMUND - ELIZABETH AGNES - MARRICKVILLE

NSW Birth PARKER EDMUND 21225/1891 EDMUND - ELIZABETH - MARRICKVILLE

No other births in NSW index with those parents.

Perhaps Parker is her married name.

Thanks gibbo.

Just found it then the birth posted.

Marriage to Edmund Parker ??

Death for Edmund before 1893 when Elizabeth remarried ?? No divorce in NSW index.

This death rules out a birth and marriage.

NSW Death NICHOLS ELIZABETH 7662/1941 JONAH - ESTER - BOWRAL

Perhaps the birth and marriage to Parker were not in NSW.

Is Thomson on the Wood or Parker side ??

Deaths for John & Jessie Wood ??

If Reginald was born abt 1852 but not in NSW, deaths for his parents may or may not be in NSW.

Given this marriage and that a son was E. C. ? E . E. ? Parker then Elizabeth was a widow. ??

NSW Marriage 2136/1893 WOOD REGINALD - PARKER ELIZABETH A - BATHURST

Elizabeth Agnes born abt 1866.

NSW Birth 21225/1891 PARKER EDMUND - EDMUND - ELIZABETH - MARRICKVILLE

Father listed so Elizabeth probably married and maiden name not Parker.

Edmund as father may or may not be correct.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Sat 12 Jan 1963 p.72
DEATHS
PARKER Edmund (Ernest).-January 11, 1963, at his residence, 1424 Rocky Pt Road, Sans Souci, dearly beloved husband of Myra, loving father and father-in-law of Eddie and Betty, Jean and Bill, Scholes, Gordon and Maisie, Raymond and Betty, Douglas and Helen, and dear grandfather of their children, dearly beloved brother of Geoffrey and Dolly (Mrs Hancock), aged 72 years. Home with the Lord.

Elizabeth Agnes born abt 1866 (parents John & Esther) - mother of Ernest, Jessie Violet (dec), Geoffrey and Dorothy (Mrs Hancock)

Edmund (Ernest) Parker born abt 1891 - brother of Geoffrey and Dorothy.

That's confusing. Ernest = Edmund must be the only child of Elizabeth's first marriage. Jessie, Geoffrey and Dorothy all have surname Wood.

Maiden name for Elizabeth Agnes born abt 1866 ? - parents John & Esther.

Marriage of Elizabeth Agnes to a Parker before 1891.
