If those children were born in NSW, then likely the registered births will be on the free to search NSW BDM indexes at the following link :

http://www.bdm.nsw.gov.au/Pages/family-history/family-history.aspx 

I would expect the order the names show on that death certificate will indicate William as the eldest then living, through to Helena as the youngest then living.

NSW BDM recently adjusted their search options and you can now determine the actual date of an event, not just the year. 

Fingers crossed,

JM

Thank You Jamjar for all that information

I found this death for Alfred W at Young
Death of a Well Known Showman
It has him a resident of Kingsgrove Canterbury
http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article12559998

I am still looking for daughter Annie and hope the parish records for Alfred and Annie's MC may have more information about their dad Alfred

What information do you have on Alfred Snr?

There are Alfred's buried at Moorfields: http://www2.canterbury.nsw.gov.au/history/cemetery/moorefields/fulllist.htm

1902 Alfred Harris parents Alfred and Sarah CANTERBURY

Also, there is a In Memoriam for an Alfred, in 1903, by daughter Annie, first column: http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article14581413

This possibly his father who is at Moorfields: 1907 Alfred Harris parents Alfred and Eliza CANTERBURY

All that I know about father Alfred Harris is from the 1879 MC at Wellington NSW. It does not list parents or place of birth.  Just his occupation as Brick maker and usual residence of Maryland.  I have sent for the parish records but have not heard yet.  I think I may get the birth for eldest child Eliza 1880/5414 and hope.

Thanks for the article it could very well be Alfred but I need a bit more information about him.
