just checked not buried at Fawkner - Coburg
while name not on the list for Keilor Cemetery

You may need Catherine Death certificate which you can order on line at

you need rego number 15661 year 1976
at least that should say if son is alive - and with date of date of death and a address where living

Whoops sorry got mixed up it is definitely James I am looking for.  Robert was his natural father. Name Robert  Phillip Fowler, born in Scotland circa 1911, probably in Dundee - married Catherine Robertson in Dundee 21/12/1936 and died also in Dundee 28/12/1941.

Thanks

Yes  around 1937 as he was about the same age as my sister. I can't be more accurate than that at the moment, until I get back to Edinburgh and search at the Records Office

If you get order the death certificate for Catherine

you should know straight away if James was still alive - let me know the death date and I will look up the death notice

Just got Catherine's death certificate  - death date is 30th June 1976. It also gives  an address for James in East Keillor in 1976. . I will write to this address but of course he could well have moved since then. Do you know of a newspaper in which I could advertise to try to find James

Just realised from the notification of Catherine's death that James is still going by his own name  - Fowler. so he is James Fowler, not James Duncan
