Do you have them in 1911?

Maybe a good idea to add Australia to your heading

There is this one

If you think it is correct, you can order the DC (by post :-( )

Possibly not the correct 1935 death of Eliza Thomas.

There is a matching obituary in the Western Australia newspaper dated 11 Dec 1935.
Eliza Thomas died on 9 Dec Mount Hawthorn ( late of Moore River)
This woman was 74yrs old and evidently unmarried.
Her parents were John and Maria Thomas

Do you know who her parents were as they may be named on her death cert?

Could she have remarried after her husbands death?

Do we know if this really was OZ?? coz

"Signed death certificate of GGF Mathias Thomas who died 1928 at Woroloo WA"

does this mean Mathias Thomas went to Oz after signing the death certificate in england !!!
