Thank you very much for all this information I am so grateful. I have been to the grave of my great grandparents Charles and Mary Alexander in Peterhead.
How is it possible to find out why my Auntie Mary Jane Cook White m/n Alexander died at the age of 48 and is possible to get her death certificate?
Also, I would like to find out more about her brother George Alexander who immigrated to Australia around 1912 I think he went out to work as a miner. War broke out and he signed up with the Australian Imperial Forces and was killed 1918 at the age of 38.
It would be interesting to find out when they arrived in Australia and where he lived.
On the family headstone, his friend James Scott PTE 607 died on September 22 and 1918 aged 35 years. George died August 30th, 1918.
