Emigration and back
« on: Wednesday 01 May 19 21:14 BST (UK) »
I have family (husband and wife) that emigrated to Canberra, Australia in 1950. Have just recently found death certificates for them both in the 1990's in Bournemouth, Dorset, so presumably they moved back to the UK. Is there any way to find out when please? I don't know if they had children.

Do you mean death registrations as your reply suggests you have their actual death certs?

You could check if either or both left a will here  https://probatesearch.service.gov.uk/#wills

You could buy a copy of the death cert of the last to die to see who reported their death.

Incoming passenger records are available online to 1960 at Ancestry

Australian electoral rolls are on Ancestry to 1980.
You could see when they disappear (assuming you can find them in the first place!)

Ancestry's offering for Australian electoral rolls to 1980 does not cover all of the eight jurisdictions for Australia, and does not cover all the available rolls for any one jurisdiction, but it does offer a broad opportunity for family history buffs. 

Canberra's newspapers are available online and are free to search  :D  so for example the Canberra Times current coverage is from 1926 to 1995....  :D  and the Commonwealth of Australia Gazette Public Service notices etc coverage is currently 1977 to 2007.  Here is the live link to the National Library of Australia's TROVE ... https://trove.nla.gov.au/
