Rookwood Catholic Cemetery, Sydney Joseph M Harrison
« on: Thursday 31 August 17 00:42 BST (UK) »
Hello There.....

Iam wondering if anyone could tell me if there is a inscription on my  grandfathers grave ?
He was interred 28th August 1933. Section 2/ Row 9/ Plot 6383

He deserted my grandmother in 1923 . arriving Fremantle 8th February 1923. My father was 2 years old.

In 1930/31 he was living at 3 Briellat street , Dalley.

he was also a member of Oxford Lodge. RAOB GLE

I been informed that he married a Alice Foster ?

Can anyone help please ? I have exhausted my knowledge of Australian research.

Many thanks
JeannieR

Jeannie, where did you get the following from? He was interred 28th August 1933. Section 2/ Row 9/ Plot 6383

I can't see his death on NSWBDM, or Rookwood Catholic deceased search website.

I can't see a NSW marriage to Alice either.

In 1930/31 he was living at 3 Briellat street , Dalley.


I believe Dalley was an electoral area and Breillat St was in Annandale, Sydney.

In 1931 a man named

Joseph Maurice HARRISON was living at 3 Briellat Street. Kentville. (possibly meant to be Breillat).
He was a labourer.
No others of the surname share that address.

Was the initial M in the name you have given standing for Maurice?

Perhaps a co-incidence that there's two chaps with same surname in same street...  :)

Kentville was an estate in Annandale. The owner John Young, died 1907, so it is possible the estate was subdivided for housing.
