« on: Wednesday 19 September 12 08:43 BST (UK) »
Valerie Fairbairn MCINTOSH born abt 1910 Vic. Married Harold Croxon HAMON, born 1910 England, married 1935 Vic. Harold died abt 1975 Adelaide, can't find death for Valerie, I have them together on electoral roll in 1949, can't find him on any other roll.I have Valerie on all rolls till 1977 at Karingal, Chelsea, Victoria.
So is Date of Death for Harold correct? and when where did Valerie die Cheers Jen

Springvale Cemetery
Valerie Fairburn HAMON cremated, ashes scattered, 29 Jan 1988


There are two service records for Harold Croxson HAMON, b. 31 Mar 1909 Liverpool, England  (with photos)

He enlisted in RAN Feb 1927 + 12yrs, discharged Mar 1939

Enlisted WW2...married 23 Jan 1935..wife, two children under 16, one over 16
(so maybe two marriages?)

Where does your reference to Harold d. South Australia ~ 1975  come from?

Information was sent by another family member, no reference, so I am trying to check it, I would call this person a unreliable source

This from GenealogoySA however there is no death registration in SA to 1972  or listing on Port Pirie Cemetery database.  

Another resource states that this MI is at the Port Pirie War Cemetery and it is noted as HAMON H C and Freda Haynes.

Port Pirie Cemetery   
Memorial Inscription   HAMON   H C 61 years   1971

Found a husband for Freda Beatrice HAYNES

Harold HAYNES aged 61y of Port Pirie died 14 Feb 1971
Relative was Freda Beatrice HAYNES [W]
Pir/116A/1035

Council records have him listed as Harry HAYNES so what connection to H C HAMON?

Australian Electoral Roll
NSW 1937
HAMON, Harold Croxson  HMAS Australia, C/-GPO Sydney  Operator
HAMON Valerie Fairbairn  1066 Rocky Pt Road, Kogarah  HD
1943
HAMON Harold Croxson  Somers  Storekeeper
HAMON Valerie Fairbairn  Somers  HD

1949
HAMON Harold Croxson  17 Birdwood Street, Frankston  Storekeeper
HAMON Valerie Fairbairn  17 Birdwood Street, Frankston  HD

Did he use the surname HAYNES or has there been some confusion at the time of registering his death.  Perhaps they weren't married.    I would also approach the Port Pirie council for clarification of their cemetery records.
