Hi there,

Did you contemplate spending some pennies on the NSW BDM d.c. or the less expensive but just as detailed official transcription? It should include 'how long in Australia' ...  His widow may have been the informant as she was alive at that time.   JM.

Is this his death?
NSW, 1965 # 21426
James AYRES, parents: James, Emily

There are 5 other deaths in NSW in with surname AYRES and 2 forenames - this is the only death with just James.

Each state in Australia records its own BMDs  so he could be in any other state.

This is possibly the burial details of the man above:
James AYRES, 76
Death Date:   4 May 1965
Burial Place: Rookwood Cemetery, Sydney, New South Wales,
Section:   19, Row:   8,  Denomination:   Anglican
Rookwood is a huge cemetery.

I cannot see him on the National Archives (Australia) immigration record but the records aren't very good for that time.  He was a British Citizen (all Australians were also at that time) so no naturalisation needed.  I do not see him on the WW1 records either.

Not much help - Judith

That is definitely the right family thanks. As regards the lady who "may still be living" if she is in this family it is almost a certainty. Most of the women live into their late 90s!! We men don't do quite so well though my cousin is 91. My great grandmother Emily referred to in the postings was 91, the only one of my great grandparents who could have met me. Amazing thing too is that there are very few dementia cases amongst them.
