Death
Winifred Carolin BAKER, aged 82. Father Robert EDEY. Mother Louise PHILLIPS.1977/ 11744. At Boroondara.


As mentioned above, this death.
I am not sure about the location.

What I have typed is from Ancestry's Death index.

Looking at the record on another source, it is recorded as BOOR.

This could be BOORT in central Victoria

Hi Sparrett,
wow, this is amazing, thank you for the effort you have put into finding this information for me! I am thinking this could very well be my fathers family. Re the name Lawrence, I can't be sure if that was his name or if it was John Robert; I am waiting to get the death certificate back to see if John Robert Baker fits the picture.

This is a great lot of information to start sifting though and once again, thank you!

There was a family named WOODS living at St Arnaud.  I  think.... John and Susannah WOODS with an extended family.

There may be a connection there.

Hi Sparrett, I think that WOODS wasn't his real name but BAKER, he went by the name of John Woods for many years! Thanks again  :)

Hi Lesley,
I have located John Woods' burial and MI at Ivanhoe.

Do you need this information?

I will PM it if so.

Hi Sue,
yes both my father and mother are buried at Ivanhoe and I visit there when I can but thanks for that. I knew my father as 'John Woods' when he was with my mother and until his death but it is anything before that time and under another name - either Lawrence Robert Baker (as I can recall my mother telling me) or Robert John Baker - from a death certificate which matches with the date he died and includes the name John Woods. I am still waiting on a copy of that death certificate, hopefully it had some more information on it that might give me some clues.

I still haven't had a chance to fully explore all the stuff you found for me yesterday - it certainly is interesting and still very much a mystery. Thanks again for all of your efforts!

That's OK.

I thought you were probably in possession of the cemetery info ;D

Perhaps you will have more clues to share when your transcript arrives.
