Re replies #20 & 21 concerning the Arthur Curwood who died in 1963. It might pay to contact the cemetery to see if they hold any further information about this man............

He was a retired boundary rider!

Had a reply: Unfortunately, we do not have much information on this particular deceased as it was a public burial arranged by the department of Repatriation. No age or date of death is known. The only information we know is that the burial took place on 11/07/1963.
Back to the drawing board?

Hello Cr,

From reply #27 we learn that although this Arthur Curwood died intestate, "an election to administer was filed". So somewhere in NSW archives, there should be court documents showing how his estate was distributed. Hopefully someone will be able to advise you as to how you might sight these documents, because something useful may be found here........

Hi Cr,

Re assessing the court records, you might try putting this up as a new topic on the Australia board......
