Thank you to all for the information, with your help I have traced all but one, I was hoping that the family tree that Noells mentioned might have contained Allie's actual name
regards
Craig

Just wondering if two Rigby daughters married WRIGHT?
"Mesdames E. and A. Wright" named as daughters.
Francis Zilla married Arthur George WRIGHT, so she is Mesdame A. Wright.
Which RIGBY daughter is the wife of E. WRIGHT (son-in-law)?

Adding: Examiner 4Jan1939 http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/52287123
Mr. and Mrs. Eric Wright are visiting Mrs. Wright's mother, Mrs. G. A. Rigby, Nile.

Hi, I am searching for children of John Rigby...Grace Ann Higgins who lived at Nile, Tasmania. From Grace Ann's obituary there were 12 children , but only shortened names were used, Jack, Gladys, Mattie, Keith, George, Merv, Allie, Connie, Dora, Fanny, Benard and Ray, I have traced some but have a few gaps. Aubrey John (Jack) b. 26 Dec 1893 Gladys Maud b. 22 Dec 1894 Martha Eliza b. 17 April 1897 Reginald Keith b.13 Sept 1899 Mervin Edward Baden b. 26 Oct 1900 George Steven Mafeking b. about 1901 Allie ? Connie ? Dora ? Francis Ella ( Fanny) ? Bernard Garth ? Douglas Raymond ? about 1922 I would appreciate any help if possible
... I have traced all but one... Allie's actual name

Allie = Clarence - 5th born son.

Children are usually listed in birth order on the death notice the same as a death certificate.

Jack = Aubrey John 26/12/1893 EVANDALE #640/1894 RGD 33
Gladys = Gladys Maud 22/12/1894 EVANDALE #631/1895 RGD 33
Mattie = Martha Eliza 17/04/1897 EVANDALE #636/1897 RGD 33
Keith = Reginald Keith 13/09/1899 EVANDALE #587/1899 RGD 33
George = George Stephen Mafeking Edward Baden 26/10/1900 CLARENDON #2143
Merv = Mervyn Edward Baden 26/10/1900 bap.12/01/1908 EVANDALE #7294/1908 #RGD 32
George & Mervyn appear to be twins. Due to a possible error originally only one instead of two registrations were made. George Stephen/Mafeking Edward Baden. This was rectified when Mervyn was baptised in 1908 which gave the same birth date as George.
Allie = Clarence 29/01/1907 THE NILE #2422
Connie = Constance Helen 19/02/1909 CLARENDON #1532
Dora = Dora Jane 21/09/1912 Clarendon EVANDALE #3204
Fanny = Zilla Francie 23/07/1915 NILE #2164
Benard = Bernard Garth 27/05/1918 THE NILE #3750
Ray = Douglas Raymond 22/09/1922 CLARENDON

Obit for Martha Eliza DAVEY (nee RIGBY), August 1939 at Westbury lists the chief mourners (all men) who are her brothers, son-in-law, an uncle Mark RIGBY, and a cousin Maurice RIGBY.
http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/25619724

Engagement Notice for Mollie and Bernard, 1945.  Her father listed as Allan H BIRD, John street, East Devonport.

Marriage notice for Mollie Gwynn BIRD and Bernard Garth RIGBY, at Devonport, August 1947. 
http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/69016046

A stillborn daughter, Dec 1948
http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/69198661

Daughter, 1950
http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/69307222

Can't see a birth for Mollie, but it's likely she was in her 20s when she married so her birth records are probably still embargoed publicly.
