Hi Deb,
   It's too early in the morning for me to have assimilated all that info (and I have to dash off now)  :)

   If you can find any probates for those who died in NSW then I am happy to photograph them for you next time I am there  https://www.records.nsw.gov.au/

   There is a gap in the online probate indexes from 1891 to 1927 but I can check the microfiche index when I am there.   I will check for one for William SMITH who died 1912 in Granville.

Hi Marg,
   Here are the contact details for W.A. State Archives http://www.sro.wa.gov.au/about-us/contact-details.   Perhaps it is worth sending an e-mail and asking them directly.

Hi Karen,
   Just to eliminate one possibility.

   On NSW BDM there is a death of a Grace WEST in 1984 with mother Margaret and no father given.
https://www.bdm.nsw.gov.au/Pages/family-history-research/family-history-search.aspx

   However the grave makes clear that she was born in 1915 and had maiden name O'Meara
https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/48620635#view-photo=168571668  So this is not your Grace.

   With only 1 parent name and a fairly common name like Margaret, it means that there could be more false hits.

   I wonder if you could ask the grandson if he could just tell you where Grace is buried ....?  That seems like a reasonable request and isn't being nosey about the rest of her life (if that's what he is afraid of).

( I did search passenger lists on national Archives for Inglis and Wardrop while it was on its last wobbly legs)

I haven't found one ...  :(

I also looked for a marriage for Grace/Gracie INGLIS/WARDROP in NSW and W.A. without success.  A marriage after 1951 is too recent for other states.

If we knew the parents' names we could do a wildcard search for the death of Grace * with parents Blah and Blah

Hi Karen,
   From Victoria BDM https://online.justice.vic.gov.au/bdm/indexsearch.doj (free to search)
there is a death of a Grace INGLIS in Victoria in 1984 but I don't think she is the correct lady as it says she was born in Adelaide.

Death Victoria
1984 Grace Caroline INGLIS, father Andrew INGLIS, mother Euphemia WATT, reg 9415
Place of Birth Adelaide, Place of death Chirnside Park

What were Grace's parents' names?

Hi Annette,

Many thousands of people flocked to Victoria in the early 1850's as a result of the gold rush.

There was an uprising by the miners, The Eureka Stockade, but (just checked) this was in December 1854 so after your man had died. https://www.britannica.com/event/Eureka-Stockade
