Hi jamjar. (GILES Edwin (Mac) Death notice 22-1-2010 Death 76 Herald Sun (Melbourne) 26-1-2010) Gotta be some math mistakes. He would have been born 1934? I have him employed on the London & South Western Railway in 1927 when he resigned to be a builder apprentice. DOB there was 1895. This one died 1971 in Prahran Victoria.

Hi Sue. I have gone about as far as I can go with Iris/ Thomas.

Well, the death of Thomas has not been found.
He enlisted for ww1 and you can see his digitised record
http://www.naa.gov.au/collection/search/

This is his birth-

Thos DIAMOND
At Avenel, Victoria
Father Thos Diamond   
Mother Margt Beaton CUTHBERT
1896  #24963

These parents had several children.

Iris May and Thomas DIAMOND, after their marriage can be seen on the Victorian electoral roll at several different places in Victoria, including Stawell in 1937. About 1939 at Stawell he was declared bankrupt.

https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/11252791

In 1942 Iris May and Thomas DIAMOND are living at 407 Pt Nepean Rd., Mentone and this is the last sighting of them together.

This death notice 1942, for the mother of Thomas DIAMOND implies he lives still at Mordialloc.
https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/11984233

His father died in 1951 and this death notice names his son Thomas as living in Port Melbourne1951.
Certainly no hint he is deceased.
https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/23042924
 
However he is not on Electoral Roll.

By 1949 Iris is Iris May EASTON living at the same 1942 address 407 Pt Nepean Rd., Mentone with David EASTON.

By the way, the army file for Thomas DIAMOND husband of Iris contains a letter from Miss Annie CUPIT of Nottingham, whose tone seems urgent. It is in 1920, so just after his discharge.She requests headquarters to pass the "enclosed letter" to Thomas DIAMOND.

Free BMD  births is worth a search in respect of this note. :P
