Thanks Ros, I have a copy of that death certificate and it is a different Edith May Crook.
Regards, Jenny.

What was the date of death and the cemetery details from that d.c. for that different Edith May Crook please?

Cheers,  JM

Perhaps a side track, re Eliza Victoria CROOK on the NSW ER for 1936, see reply # 9

There's a d.c. indexed for Eliza Victoria CROOK, aged 76 yrs, died at Waterloo, (very near to Arncliffe), registered at Redfern, in 1938 #684.

edit to add

http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/17443592 SMH 8 January 1938

@Alison, Yes that is the birth details for Edith - I have a copy of the birth certificate, as well as copies for the siblings of Edith.
Eliza Victoria Crook is the mother of Robert James Crook, she died in 1938.
The Qld Edith May Crook is a different person - it seems to be a popular name!

@wivenhoe, Yes, the marriage in Sweden sounds very suspect.  The death certificates for Robert James Crook and his second wife both list Sweden as the place of their marriage.  I have always thought Sweden was used as a ruse to hide a marriage that didn't actually occur.
Re the WW1 record, the Redfern address represents the NOK address at the time of enlistment, rather than current address in Aug 1940.

@JM, The other death certificate is actually for Edith May CROOKS, although it appears as CROOK on NSW BDM.  She is buried at Botany Cemetery, NSW (aka Eastern Suburbs Memorial Park).  This Edith May Crooks never married and was 34 at the time of her death.

Hi there,

I think Edith May CROOK was alive in Jan 1938, and is listed as Mr and Mrs R J Crook in the newspaper cutting...  Sorry, not advancing your 1937 much at all.

Have you looked for IM notices at trove for Eliza Victoria, to see if any mention of daughter in law ?

Cheers,  JM

Hi JM,

I have seen the death notice for Eliza Victoria (using trove).  As it only mentions Mr and Mrs R J Crook, I cannot be certain if it is referring to Edith or to Robert's second wife.

Cheers, Jenny.

There is a WW1 record .....Letters about replacing lost medals.
In Aug 1940 ....has address 59 Hannam St Arncliffe, next of kin is wife E M Crook, .....?.

And at page 14 (of 27) Edith May Crook's address was changed to Barella St Wollongong in 1917  ;)
