DEATH
 
ARCHIBALD, Suddenly at Wollongong Hospital, 16th January, 1932
Caroline Waller, beloved wife of George Archibald, School Lane,Balgownie.

We are thinking of you, dear mother Thinking of the past;
Picturing you in memory, Just as we saw you last,
A wonderful mother, companion and aid;
One who was better, God never made
A wonderful mother, so loyal and true,
One in a million, that mother was you.

Oh wow the record for Caroline Archibald is definitely the right person -my Grandmother's sister Euphemia lived in Australia and died I think in about 1980 and all the other names fit as well.
I'll check passenger lists now to see when they travelled from Scotland to Australia.
The Mary Thomas mentioned could also possibly be my Grandmother as she did shop work in Scotland prior to moving to Australia.
I need to now get a copy of my Mum's birth certificate I think and will then possibly get a street address although I was told by the Records office that it's not certain that it will be included.
Thank you all so much for all your help 😀

So, is it correct that Mary's parents were George and Christina?

What was the name of William's father, as per marriage transcript?

Is this Euphemia's marriage and death?:

Yes Euphemia's parents were
George & Christina Archibald.
My understanding was that George returned to Scotland but I may be completely wrong about this.

I've added info to my post above.

I am thinking that as Euphemia had more than one middle name that Mary should have had at least one.  ;)
