It's all pointing to Matron Minnie Rose being the Nurse Minnie Rose that you were looking for Greg.  And she is grandmother of David Rossiter Edgar and they were in Mullewa at the right time. 

cheers,
   Ros
(thanks cupoflife  :) )

Hi all,
a few things still puzzle me a little.

In Fredericks service records he states (NOK) Minnie Rose (now looks certain to be the Matron!) as his wife. Maybe they were just partners? It seems she had a few children but none to Frederick?

Also in the Matrons death notice it mentions her late husband  "William Rose" so finding out when he died would be handy (as long as it was before WW1 otherwise things get interesting!)

Hopefully after 30 years of searching I might be able to return his medal to a relative!!! :)
