Where is C Hill, Victoria please
« on: Monday 04 July 16 13:38 BST (UK) »
I have come across a death registered in 'C Hill' in VIC. Would someone please be kind enough to tell me what this is an abbreviation of, and where it is? Thanks in anticipation.

Good thinking Maggsie  :)  But there may be other possibilities ...?

If you give us the name and the dod Forfarian, we may be able to find a will or a death notice or a burial or some other useful info

William Burgess, 1908/9170, aged 48. The death index gives no parents' names, but I am looking for the son of George Burgess and Ann Gray, born 1861 in Scotland, who is described in his father's will, dated 1905, as a baker in Ballarat. The will also mentions his children but does not name them.

I have looked on Trove and in the Victoria probate index and found nothing, so a burial would seem to be the only possibility.

Looking at the 1903 electoral roll ...

There is a William BURGESS, pastrycook, at 286 Spencer St, Melbourne.   No others of that surname at the address.   Women did have the right to vote but possibly hadn't registered.

Not much help sorry ...

Buried at Fawkner
http://www.gmct.com.au/deceased-search.aspx

Inquest were routinely held for deaths in public institutions.  May have died at Yarra Bend Asylum and quite often the information on those death certificates is scant.

BURGESS William
1908  Ref#719

Can you just clarify for me please ;D
The children of whom are mentioned in the will of George?
George the father or William the son?

If it is the children of William you mean, is there any further description of them  .....whereabouts? ....age?
