Following on from Rosie's info ...

1911 Obit for Hector AITKEN http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article226819059 and description of death
http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article224942742 and funeral notice http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article226819105

1910 Hector AITKEN had a miraculous esacpe http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article198869171

1895 Death of James Murray AITKEN http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article88952605

And I wonder if this fits in anywhere ... A Robert AITKEN, who came from Bendigo but died in W.A. in 1934 aged 80 (and he had a son Hector  :))
An obit  http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article32943487 and some death notices
http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article84199963 and http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article32942699 with lots of family info.
I can't see a c1854 birth on Vic BDM.

Thank you everyone who replied to my request for information regarding Robert. You have messaged me to let me know about his life and family. I am so glad that he had done well in Australia. Wondering why he went to Bendigo I googled it and found about the gold rush there and I think that is why he went there. About the shunter Hector Aitken who was killed by a train ,my late brother Hector Aitken Laurie was also a shunter on railway. you are all such great people who has given me the insight to Robert. Thank you all again. Alexanderina.
