I've just been checking on the requirements to order a birth certificate for a birth less than a 100 years ago.   They don't make it easy - understandably.

It doesn't seem to cover your circumstances but maybe you could enquire.

On 1935 ER
William James THOMAS and Mary Agnes THOMAS are still on electoral roll at 44 Judd St, Rockdale
(quite possible that they didn't notify electoral commission of leaving )

BUT also at this address is
Victor Crawford THOMAS, 44 Judd St, Rockdale, linotype operator
George Joseph THOMAS, 44 Judd St, Rockdale, compositor

No I'm not dismissing that one at all 😀My Grandfather was an amateur boxer from Bargoed in South Wales and he came to Australia initially for a boxing tour met my Grandmother ( who came on an assisted passage as a domestic servant) on the ship and they married 2 years later.
My Great Grandparents were not from Australia.

Exmouth,
Do you know the names of the parents of either of your grandparents?
(I see Christina for your Grandmother's mother)
If they died before 1987, we may be able to locate the couple through death records and work backwards to where they lived.

Bexley is a suburb next to Rockdale:

THOMAS William James Death notice 30-7-1963 Death 77 at Bexley Sydney Morning Herald  2-7-1963

THOMAS Mary Agnes Death notice 14-2-1964 Death 75 late of Bexley Sydney Morning Herald 15-2-1964

24960/1963  William James THOMAS parents GEORGE JOSEPH and ELIZABETH ROCKDALE

14320/1964 Mary Agnes THOMAS parents JOHN and MARY ROCKDALE

So, if Mary's mother was Christina, then this isn't the correct Mary.

Victor Crawford:

THOMAS Victor Crawford Death notice 5-11-2007 Cremation 99 at Manly Vale Nursing Home, formerly of Willandra Village Manly Daily 3-11-2007

I can only see one death with mother Christina up to 1987. Kogarah is a suburb next to ROCKDALE

43725/1973 Mary Rubina THOMAS parents JOHN HENDERSON and CHRISTINA INGRAM KOGARAH This Mary was the wife of Leonard.

Would anyone be able to do a lookup for me in Electoral Rolls for NSW between 1929&1932 ?
It's a long shot but I'd really love to know where my Grandparents lived in Australia so that I could visit next time I'm in Australia.
My Grandparents were married at St.James Church in Sydney in 1932 but no street address is given on the marriage certificate.
My Mum was born in Corrimalon19/1/1932 but I don't have a copy of her birth certificate and ( due to the 100 year rule) don't think that anyone would be able to look that up for me.
If any help my Grandfather was from South Wales and my Grandmother Mary was from Hamilton in Scotland ( maiden name Archibald)

May I suggest you consider contacting NSW State Library re the electoral rolls, as their holdings far exceed those that the commercial family history websites have currently uploaded.
NSW State Library : http://www.sl.nsw.gov.au/research-and-collections/ask-librarian

Re the NSW marriage certificate...  May I ask when the document you are looking at was actually issued ...  You see, the details the NSW BDM may have released when issuing certified copies in say the 1970s, 1980s, may not have included 'all' the available details.  However, it is also possible that the clergy when marrying the couple only asked them for the name of the town/locality.   In any case, what about other information that is on the document ... perhaps you could type it up, including the names of their witnesses ... searching for them may help the quest...

Have you checked through the Sands Directories for NSW ... free to search via the uploaded digitised images available via the City of Sydney's archives.
