Possible birth for Herbert BALDOCK in 1890 in Lambeth UK. Can see him in 1901 in Battersea aged 10 but not who he is with. Emigration from London to Adelaide in 1911 of Herbert BALDOCK b. c1891. Appears to be travelling without family.

Sad :-(

The Advertiser, Thursday 5 June 1941
After he had been missing from his home since Sunday, the body of Herbert Baldock, 50, foreman, of Elizabeth street, Mile End, was found in the sea off West Beach yesterday. Although he had not been seen for three days some clothes found on the beach near the body were dry, indicating that Baldock had entered the water since Tuesday night's rain. It is understood that Baldock had been in ill-health for some months.

The Advertiser, Thursday 5 June 1941
BALDOCK.—On the 3rd of June, Herbert (Bert), the beloved husband of Agnes Baldock, of 35 Elizabeth street, New Mile End, and late of McLaren street, Adelaide, and loving father of Reginald, aged 50 years.

Hi Sheila

If you search here
you will find that Agnes died in 1971 in SA. I think Herbert died in 1941. [yes, see next post]

Herbert & Agnes had a son named Reginald Gordon in 1916; he died in 1967, aged only 52. He married Iris VAUGHAN in 1935 in Adelaide. Iris was born in Adelaide in 1916 and died in 2006 aged 89. Reginald served in WWII:

BALDOCK REGINALD GORDEN : Service Number - SX19311 : Date of birth - 20 Sep 1916 : Place of birth - YACKA SA : Place of enlistment - WAYVILLE SA : Next of Kin - BALDOCK IRIS

Agnes, Reginald & Iris' memorials can call be found here

NB There was another Reginald Gordon born in SA around the same time; he married Loueen Jean BAWDEN in 1938 and died in 1993 aged 78; they are buried together at Robe Cemetery. Just in case he pops up and causes confusion.

Got an email back only to find out it was not him. I will keep on looking in other areas now. Hopefully, I will find some details soon.
Thank you for your help.
Kind regards

Thanks Alison, good luck, I hope they help you out. :-)

I have just sent an email to Qld about that death cert. Hopefully they will give me some info. It is a lot of money for a cert when you get the wrong person. I would be very happy to purchase it if it is him.
How should I go about tracing his Will. Money did come over but the person that told me this is no longer with us. I know the name of the person who recieved the money, so that is something! If he did not make a Will, then there is still information to be had as money came here. Belfast told me the information will be in Australia. This Alexander is proving difficult. I have not problems getting info on his 10 siblings, Thank goodness! When you are in the other side of the world, it is difficult to get the information and it is great to have people like Cherilyn.

Cherilyn, thanks for looking. What I was told was, that they had a child before they married, then another 5 after.

Hellen died in England Aug/Sep 1975.

Thanks again

Hi Trudianne

Haha, funny I had thought of the Flintstones when I saw Wilma! :-)

No marriage in Vic (also checked NSW in case he went over the border!) - is it possible they never married?

Alison, pity about the NZ one...could be the Qld one but the only way to know for sure would be to fork out for the certificate. Unfortunately Qld certs are rather pricey.

Just found the index for the Marytn St Cemetery online. He is listed as Alexandra but shown as male, aged 57, buried 3 Dec 1920. So age not quite right.

(By the by my hubby's grt grandfather's headstone is actually inscribed Alexandra...and his wife Martha!)

I also saw the NSW one, but there is a matching birth of an Alexander R with those parents in NSW so I discounted it.


Aspen Report 4 Nov 2012 21:06

Going through everything I could and found this....NSW 1106/1927 Alexander R Spence with parents Alexander for father and Mary for mother, Ashford. The R is putting me off as he only had one name. I think if it said Mary Jane I would feel happier. I wonder if there is a way to check the cert before purchasing!
