CHARLES KINSELA FUNERALS
« on: Sunday 31 December 17 11:47 GMT (UK) »
Hello!

I'm looking for information / threads to help me find out about my Grandfather and lost family.

My Grandfather was:  GILBERT FRANK SAWYER. 
Date of Death 07/02/1966.
Funeral Date: 11/02/1966. 

We know that his ashes lay in the Round Rose Garden at Eastern Suburbs Memorial Park.  He was 49 at the time of his passing. We found this information out from the memorial park along with the name of the funeral directors Charles Kinsela Funerals.

He was married to a lady called BERYL MELITA GEORGINA SAWYER (Born SMITH) in SYDNEY. Registration Number 15607/1949.

I'm hoping to find other the records for Gilberts funeral and relatives related to either Gilbert or Beryl.

Thank you!
Hayley

Welcome to Rootschat! There is a family tree for this family on the Australian site, which I presume is yours as you are also mentioned on there-Hayley Rogers. If this is not your tree then there is a lot of information on there that you would need to check out thoroughly. However I have found the birth for Gilbert Frank Sawyer who was born in the 4th qtr of 1917 Cuckfield, Sussex-Mother Puttick. You can send for a copy of his birth to the General Register Office, and then you will have correct information for moving back in time.
Regards.

Hi Paco,

Yes I am aware of the family tree, its been put together by my cousin who lives in Australia.  We are working together on it.

I know that the records for the funeral directors CHARLES KINSELA FUNERALS are open to the public  at the TROVE in Australia, but I don't know how to gain access them from England.

Hi
This article has a footnote under Select Bibliography which refers to the records of this firm.
http://adb.anu.edu.au/biography/kinsela-charles-henry-william-10747

I can't imagine that the records  of any person's funeral they conducted would be in the public domain so do you mean the Funeral notice?
Trove is a collection of Australian newspapers which is free to view online. Just google it.

1954 electoral rolls Gilbert and Beryl are at 199 Crown Street West Sydney. Beryl is a mail officer and Gilbert a hotel employee.

There is also a 1958 electoral roll which still has them at 199 Crown street with the same occupations as the 1954 record.

Thank you, that's interesting I never knew that.   I know he was the Hotel Manager of the Robin Hood, where he died.
