Have you looked to see what period the bmd's covered?

? Australia, Electoral Rolls, 1903-1980? Census & Electoral Rolls 69,587,156
? Australia Marriage Index, 1788-1950 Birth, Marriage & Death, including Parish 5,329,018
? Australia Birth Index, 1788-1922? Birth, Marriage & Death, including Parish 5,157,166
? Australia Death Index, 1787-1985? Birth, Marriage & Death, including Parish

I think it also depends on which state, as my aunts death in 1979 Queensland is not listed

OK Mrs MIller is a daughter of Edward jnr & Gertrude - Doris, b. 1912. She married Alfred R MILLER in 1932.

They also had a son named William b. 1911.

Gertrude died in July 1977, daughter of Harry & Elizabeth (reg 15713). She is at Woronora too. All 3 are together, plus son Wm (d. 1911) & Marjorie (d. 1980). She may be the Miss M. Newlyn in Edward's notice?

Linda - re NEWLYN-GALE

They had another 2 children, born in Brisbane Water district NSW:
Mary 1885 (reg 34237)
Edward 1887 (reg 36476).

Daughter Annie died in 1895 in Hurstville NSW (reg 5003).

Mary married Theodore BOX in 1908 in Sydney (reg 3743). She died in 1949 in Rockdale district NSW (reg 2848). Her husband died at Royal Price Alfred Hospital on July 24, 1924 aged only 40.

The Sydney Morning Herald, Monday 7 March 1949
BOX. Mary - March 5, 1949, at a private hospital, late ol 38 Duncan Street, Arncliffe, beloved wife of the late Theodore Box and loved mother of Thelma, Edna (Mrs Williams) Ted, Clive and Malcolm (decd.), aged 64 years.

Thelma M[aud?] b. 1909 Kogarah, ?d. 1995
Edna M[ary?] b. 1911 Hurstville, m. John R[obert?] WILLIAMS 1935 Rockdale, ?d. 1991 [late of Bexley]
Edward Theodore (Ted) b. 1913 Kogarah, m. Elvie Irene TAYLOR 1940 Barraba, d. 1989
Clive Stanley b. 1915, m. Norma Clare MULVIHILL 1939 St Peters, d. 2000 (Vic)
Malcolm b. 1922 Bexley, served in RAAF in WWII, d. 1944 (Flight Sergeant, 53 Squadron)

Edward NEWLYN died in 1956 in Sutherland district NSW (reg 12801), shown as son of Edward & Elizabeth.

Edward jnr married Gertrude May CHESTER in 1911 in Hurstville (reg 1754).

BUT the death in Sutherland district in 1939 for Edward NEWLYN, shown as son of Edward Gertrude (?) and May (reg 25334) appears to be Edward jnr as the funeral notice (SMH, 2nd Dec1939, see NLA Trove) lists him as son of Mrs E. Newlyn, ?brother of Mrs Box, Mrs Miller and Miss M. Newlyn...very odd!

Both Edwards are at Woronora Cemetery but Elizabeth is not with them. Theodore & Mary BOX are also there. Do you know Elizabeth's parents names?

So sorry I have been AWOL everyone. GR has been so quiet for ages, I ahven't even checked!

Bruce I have come up blank on this one sorry :-(

Ditto for Keith. No such birth to be found. Perhaps he had changed his name? There is an Edwin Robert GRANT who married in Victoria in 1888 but his wife was too young to have had a child c1872.

Zena, bit more luck on yours, will post separately.
