louis samuel hood
« on: Tuesday 02 July 19 19:50 BST (UK) »
Hi, Louis committed suicide in Victoria in 1903 aged 41. Have read coroners reports etc and know most things now about him. Was wondering if there is a possible gravestone that might detail his exact dob as his birth and baptism were never registered in the uk. He was born either 1862/3.

Thanks
