Australia / Re: Australian marriage Walter George SMITH c 1903

Vic State Library has various digitised Melbourne Directories on line. 

Thanks, JM, good idea. I had a wander through them, but without much luck. I looked in 1900 for Smith, Hunkin, Richey and Achon.
There was a Walter G Smith at 11 Pakington-st, Kew, and several other Walter Smiths, but nothing to identify their occupations.
Mrs Elizabeth Hunkin was the only person listed with that surname. In 1900 she was at Carlton, and in 1905 at Moonee Ponds.
Nobody listed at Achon, Acton, Aclon or similar in 1900.
A couple of Richeys, but not a familiar first name.
I was impressed that the directories had an index to navigate the alphabetised section. It's more efficient than browsing.

Would Kate be on the 1903 electoral roll or was it only for married women then? Just trying to work out her whereabouts before getting on the ship.

In 1903 Melbourne the Electoral register shows 3 men named Walter George SMITH .
Two seem unlikely one being a laborer and another a collector.

The third-
SMITH, Walter George
42 Gipps Street Melbourne. Occ.Reporter
Sharing the  address
SMITH Mildred, Home Duties.

Sue
That's not the house he was living in at the time of the marriage. I don't know how often the electoral register is updated. Was Mildred living at Gipps Street on the next one? If so, was anyone else there with her?

Maybe I can only attach one screen shot at a time. I'll try again.
This is the name in the box.

Well, I'm still impressed, and pleased you persuaded me to check.
Here goes with the screen shots.
First one is the box where it states the bride's name and marital condition.
Next, signatures of groom and bride.
Then the names written by the minister as part of his declaration.
And finally, the addresses she gives as her current residence and repeated as her usual address. Not sure of the street name, but Carlton, Vic., which was also given as her place of birth.
Describing themselves as a widow probably gave women a few more freedoms at that time. It does seem a bit odd if she was born in Victoria that she doesn't show up in the usual official records. Unless I've looked in the wrong place.
Thanks for your continuing interest.
