Good find! I think this might be them. Starting to narrow things down, now knowing they were in South Australia.

Interesting that they were in Australia sooner than I thought, 1920.

Thanks very much.  :D

One would have thought the newspaper report of the divorce would have mentioned they were no longer in the country.

They seem to be Mt Barker , Stirling West, in at least some electoral rolls but I am having great trouble getting them to load.  Anyone else have better luck.

Great finds everyone, thank you.

Everything seems to fit, but it does seem strange that the divorce article doesn't make any mention that Eva is in Australia at that point. I do want to find some information to confirm that this is the right Eva Wells. Would a South Australia death certificate include her parents' names at that time?

Not looking hopeful

https://archives.sa.gov.au/content/births-deaths-and-marriages

Deaths – Name of deceased, Date of Death, Place of Death, Age, Occupation and Cause of Death. From 1907 the following details were added: Number of children, Birthplace and Residency.  The certificate also includes Marriage Details (from 1915), Burial Place (from 1948) and Spouse/Relative Name (from 1968).

Birth place might help, if it says more than “England”

The details on South Australian DC are not very extensive.  Those with more experience than me say don't waste the money!

Are you able to link the divorce notes?
