Courier Mail Obituaries
« on: Friday 08 September 17 03:20 BST (UK) »
Hi - is there anyone out there with access to obituaries in the Courier Mail (brisbane) for 2003 and 2006 please? Or can anyone point me in the right direction?
Elsie Perry, died 28 July 2003, a notice was in the Courier Mail on 30 July 2003.
John Thomas Perry, died 7 Oct 2006, notice in the CM on 18 Oct 2006.

They are buried in the Mt Gravatt Cemetery.

Thanks

Hi ghostgirl,

You might want to consider the "ask a librarian" service considering you have the names and dates.

The 3rd floor where Librarians where the microfilms are kept are very professional and helpful.

I can give you a transcript of the notice for Elsie from Courier-Mail 30 July 2003.

But I don't have the paper for 18 Oct 2006 here, so you should try the Ask a Librarian service as Gerry suggests.  However, you might find they redirect you to the W.A. State Library if that library has the Courier Mail on film.

Can you PM me your email address for Elsie's?
Cheers
Dawn M

EDIT: Don't need your email address.  I'll just PM the transcript to you  :) :)  D
