Hi Ros

I found this on a well-known commercial ancestry site:

Name:     Richard H M Pride
Age:    32
Birth Date:    abt 1927
Death Date:    Aug 1959
Cemetery:    Point Clare
Section:    Presbyterian
Cemetery Location:    Point Clare, New South Wales

Not Queensland or NT but there can't be too many Prides with those initials.

It happens to be just up the road from me - would you like me to have a look?

Eddie

There's a site with with what looks like a comprehensive coverage of transcriptions from the Point Clare Cemetery, but there's no Pride on the list:

http://austcemindex.com/cemetery-inscriptions.php?id=505&page=all

But there is an entry in the register of unmarked graves which shows

Pride, Richard Henry M, date of interment 15 Aug 1959, row 1, grave 30

He also appears on the Electoral Roll for Southport, Qld in 1954 - there's no Mrs Pride on the roll.
