Please help me read this faded death record! **COMPLETED**
« on: Tuesday 17 February 09 19:58 GMT (UK) »
Hello
I have this death record which I downloaded from the Dept of Justice, Victoria, Australia website.
I'm having difficulty reading the "Cause of Death" and "If Burial Registered" columns for Mary Ann Woodcock, age 4. Where was she buried? I'm also trying to trace her father, Annely (but I've already started a post for this question of mine on both the Australian and NZ boards)

Many thanks
Rachel

Thanks Monique and Sarah!
Can you make out what it says after "New General Cemetery"? There are two words that follow... but illegiable to me

Thanks so much :)

Hi!
I thought that bit could have been "Joseph Hill" (the undertaker).
Ohhhhhh.... figured it out now: "Mel (then a new line) bourne" !!
Thanks for all your help!
