Thanks for that yes we have seen the second one. Not sure about the Allan connection we think he was born in South Africa but lived in England before he went to Australia. Thanks again

Hi Sheila

There is this one at North Rockhampton Cemetery, aged 75 - may be his dad?:
ELPHINSTONE Allan M 75 Wednesday, 26 August 1987 Tuesday, 1 September 1987

Assume you know about this:

and this (lovely photo of Ralph and tribute to him)

It may be worth contacting the council in Rockhampton; it was a very well known event and so they may have some knowledge of his grave's whereabouts.

Hi You have helped me before but this is for current information I am looking for the burial place of Ralph F Walker Elphinstone he was killed in 1983 in a aeroplane worked ABC Rockhampton. I know he had a son Scott Walker Elphinstone born 1973 not sure where he was born and his wife as shown in the 1980 Electroll Roll is Paula Mary Elphinstone . I know this is probally impossible so I am sorry if I have wasted you time Thanks Sheila

Hi Cherilyn,
Thank you very much for looking for me,
I have exhausted all other options I believe, he got married, had a handful of children and then disappears, the paper trail goes cold, his wife dies in England, the youngest two children end up in the workhouse. When my family were talking about this particular branch, a cousin said 'wasn't he the one that bug_red off to Australia?, at the time (years ago) I brushed it off...but there is an entry on ancestry for a Thomas Pover to NSW, only worldwide membership is needed to view it.
I'll find him eventually, thank you again for your time looking,
Kindest regards
Lisa

Hi Lisa

Closest I can find is Thomas POWER in 1865 aboard 'Himalaya' to NSW aged 24, but he is not travelling with a wife (at least she is not named, thought that can happen!

This could be a transcription error, POVER being rather unusual. What makes you think he came to NSW? Do you have his death or chn?

Hi Cherilyn,

Fingers crossed,I have been looking for this man for years!... I am looking for immigration details for Thomas Pover to New South Wales on the unassisted passenger lists, sorry I do not have a specific year but it would have been after 1862 when he married in Lambeth, Thomas was born in 1839 in Sussex England. I last have him in Corfu Roads on a HMS Terrible in the 1861 census. After that who know what happened? Any help you can offer is very much appreciated,

Kindest regards
Lisa

Hi Sylvia

It is a bad scan (Trove) but this is the result of his court case:

The Argus, Saturday 20 September 1930
Laurence Henry Harding, aged 23 years, labourer of Myrtleford, had pleaded guilty to a charge of having obtained money at Melbourne on August 3 by means of a valueless cheque. Judge Winneke said that Harding would be sentenced to imprisonment for three months.

Sorry I can't find any remarriage or death for him, nor Monica :-(

Hi Cherilyn,
could you possibly find out some info. as to what happened to Laurence Harry Harding b. London 1906. He married 1937 North Sydney to Monica Elaine Webb but papers for divorce 1941 and 1945 NSW State Records.
Laurence joined Australian Army 3rd June 1940 - discharged 2nd June 1941 - 2/29 Battalion.
Enlisted Paddington NSW. I know he had a Court case of Fraud against him 1930 but do not know result of Court case. On Trove.
I would like to know if possible if Laurence remarried and any children and what became of him after Divorce. Any snippet of info. welcome. Many thanks, Sylvia

Hi Zena

If you order thru NSW registry it will be A$31 for a certificate:
www.bdm.nsw.gov.au/cgi-bin/Index/IndexingOrder.cgi/search

If you use a transcription agent it is less - A$18 (less if you don't need the full cert). See Joy Murrin www.joymurrin.com.au/home-page/our-services/nsw/
OR Marilyn Rowan www.transcriptions.com.au/pages/transerv.php

The only difference is that it is not a 'legal' document in the courts but all the info is exactly the same! Hope this helps :-)
