Sydenham Hewan SMITH
« on: Tuesday 06 September 11 12:02 BST (UK) »
After 10 years of searching I have finally found the correct names of two of my Great Grandmother brothers who were born in India.

Sydenham Hewan was born c.1899 and I have found a death for him in 1961 in Perth, Western Australia. Buried Karrakatta Cemetery PERTH. On the site I uncovered this it said his wife was GILLIAN SWARIS.
How would I find what he did for a living, where he lived, married and whether he had children.

The other fellow is Walter Mervyn SMITH born 1892 India. I would assume he also went ot Australia.

There's a Sydenham Hewan SMITH living with a Gillian SMITH at 196a Aberdeen St, Perth in 1949. Unfortunately there is just a dash in the profession column for both Sydenham and Gillian. Out of interest, there's also a Harry SMITH living at 156 Aberdeen St that year, could just be a Smith coincidence though.

Hi,

I cannot be certain, but whenever I have found any of my "lot" on the various electoral rolls circa 1930-1954 that are imaged on Ancestry and there's the dash or nothing where the occupation ought to be, then they turn out to be old enough to have retired. 

Cheers,  JM

Oh lovely. Thank you. So I know he was in Perth for at least 20 odd years if in the 1949 directory.
I do not have a Harry yet but wouldn't it be nice if it was their son, I know, don't jump ahead ha ha x

Would I need an Australian Ancestry subscription to view these rolls or can you use the .co.uk Ancestry?

It is my understanding that these are available via the Australian subscription.  Perhaps there's a pay to view option on their UK package,

WA BDM has his age at death listed as 72 in 1961 so that would make him 60 in 1949. Retired would definitely make sense.  :)
And familysearch has Gillian's age at marriage as 21 in 1912 so within 2 years of Sydenham's age.
