I have on my family tree Leslie Arthur Ferriman and I am keen to find any living relatives of his .His children were Allan L Ferriman, Elsie A Ferriman, Iris M Ferriman, and Doris E Ferriman. I should imagine that they are all deceased now or the youngest being in their 90s . They are all from the Victoria area of Australia .Leslie Arthur Ferriman on my tree married Alice Maud Sara. I have had some great help on here recently and any help on trying to find living relatives would be much appreciated

Don't think that all these cremations/burials are yours, but at least some of them are. If you contact the Cemetery, they might give you the name of who ever collected the remains or organised the funeral


Cemetery Surname Given Names Location Burial Type Date of Service
Springvale Botanical Cemetery Ferriman Alice Maud Banksia, Wall D, Niche 48 Cremated 17/02/1988

Springvale Botanical Cemetery Ferriman Allan Leslie The cremated remains have been collected Cremated 07/04/1992

Springvale Botanical Cemetery Ferriman Ellen The cremated remains have been scattered Cremated 20/12/1978

Springvale Botanical Cemetery Ferriman Leslie Arthur Banksia, Wall D, Niche 44 Cremated 16/08/1972

Springvale Botanical Cemetery Ferriman Shirley Alwyn The cremated remains have been collected Cremated 22/10/2008

As Shirley Alwyn Ferriman was the most recent cremation, her details are probably most relevant.

4/136 Banksia St. He was a punch operator
No other Smiths at the same address

1972 – same address but with Elsie Alice Smith which does suggest that the tree on Mundia has some merit
1978 – 32 McNamarra St, N18 Preston North, Scullin, Victoria. Described as an Engineer. Elsie Alice showing there.
1963 – as 1978
1954 – as above. Not spotting any other Smiths at the same address, but there are loads of entries on the page.

I’ve not inspected all available years……eye strain!!!

FERRIMAN Shirley Alwyn Probate notice 14NOV2008 Publication late of Camberwell, Victoria The Age (Melbourne) 14NOV2008

This entry was about Probate.

See here about how to access 2008 Wills and Probate.
http://prov.vic.gov.au/wills-and-probate
Assuming there is a fee, first ask if details of those named, and hopefully their addresses, will be shown or redacted. The Australians have tighter privacy laws than the UK. One would have thought that a legal professional would be named. They might be willing to contact the last known address or the relative on your behalf, or give you some other clue.

Another thought -

Take note of the details from the Ryerson Index posted earlier. They are extracts from various newspapers.

Each State/Territory in Australia has an 'Ask a Librarian' service. If you were to contact the Victorian one, they would be willing to look up the details. The names of children might be included.
The one for the Probate might have some sort of contact details on it, possibly that of a solicitor.

You would have to tell them what the Ryerson extracts say - an easier version on the eye...........

Eileen there are only 2 FERRIMAN listings in the telephone directory in Victoria, worth a call or letter by snail mail

Go to www.whitepages.com.au (green tab, residential) and put in Ferriman as surname, no initial, then Victoria in location.
