Yes, her details match those my cousin has given me so we do know it's her for sure now. At least that's one thing, being able to download certificates, it's just a shame they didn't keep more detailed records - makes it hard.

It does look like it's them  :) Well I bought the certificate image and typical of this country's record keeping it only lists the parents' names and professions  :( - it's too painful.

I wonder what kind of details you were expecting on a marriage certificate.

Compared to many, especially those of UK, Australian certificates contain a remarkable amount of detail.

Unlikely you would find the bride's brother's birth date on any certificate.

Great information thanks! After I saw the For Sale ad for it and some information with new names in charge I did wonder if it had anything to do with George and he sold it and the new owner did the rest of the trading, but the dates don't work out - too early for George I would think. Looks like Timbo is out of the picture then with what you've found out.

This may help in your decisions to purchase Australian BMD certificates.

Of course accuracy of information will always depend on the honesty and/or knowledge of those giving it ;D

Thanks Sue, I did check on that website before I bought the certificate, I was just hoping that somehow George's birthplace at least may be on it, I know it was false hope. I'm not worried about purchasing the certificate, we needed to prove that Martha was George's daughter and it did that, which is great. I just get frustrated when I can't find information to match ages and birth dates.

Solidrock, look what I found in the Victorian BDM records - George's age when he died. The neighbour who gave the statement may have thought George looked older than he was or George was born earlier than we think  :)
