John Morgan, died 1941 @ Heidelberg, husband of Frances Wall
« on: Saturday 26 August 17 07:03 BST (UK) »
Does anyone have any information about this couple? I am struggling to find many details about them. It has been suggested that they had three sons.
Any help would be appreciated. The Morgans are an elusive family to track.
Thanks.

Noting the middle name of John on the Death index given above-Moore, this looks like a ww2 index for a son.

http://www.ww2roll.gov.au/Veteran.aspx?serviceId=A&veteranId=490163

The feminine version of Francis is of course Frances.  Here there is an error in spelling I think where noted as NOK.

Please do not publish this man's name as we have no idea whether or not he is alive.
He appears on the Victorian Electoral Roll in 1943 at an address in Lilydale, the same suburb his mothe lives in. He is listed as a soldier.
