Why don't you purchase a transcription of his death certificate?  It should have information to help you proceed with your research.

When you said Emily, did you mean Effie?

Charles CLARKE who died 3 Nov 1911 in NSW:
What we've found show he was a Machine Agent, Late of Randwick near Sydney
Widow: Euphemia (Effie).

Victoria, Australia, Wills and Probate Records, 1841-2009
Charles CLARKE who died 3 Nov 1911 in NSW: his will was administered 1913, and only mentions a wife/widow name Emily (mentioned many times and at one part, signed her name):

Granted, District Court of Victoria, 13 Dec 1913
Will & Estate of Charles Clarke of Smith Street, Fitzroy in the State of Victoria, Hotel Keeper, but late of Fern Street, Randwick, NSW, Machinery Agent

Presented to the Registrar 24 Oct 1913
Upon reading affidavits of Emily CLARKE….granted to widow Emily CLARKE of Lyttleton Street, Castlemaine, Victoria……His will was dated 2 Aug 1883.

And a lot more of similar, basically: his two executors in the will - one had died, the other renounced in 1913. and Emily was then granted Probate. He didn't leave much - some real estate, but no personal Estate.

How do you know, that this man who died 3 Nov 1911, is the same Charles CLARKE of Taroom QLD fame who in 1906 was the Auckland NZ based husband of Elizabeth of Taroom ?
