In 1943 ER Roy Robert Walters is at 281 Charles Street, a clerk. 

So she is there as Dodd, and he is recorded as Walters.

Is the implication that he was born as Walters, and deceived his wife, marrying her as Dodd, but then reverting to Walters?

There are other Roy Robert Walters around.

Was he really born 1895, and invented born at sea 1899 for the Dodd persona?

In the ER for 1954, living at his address (105 Clark Street) with the surname Walters are Leo Francis, Sylvia May and Roy Robert.  Wife Mary is not there under Walters surname. (From the death announcement

and could the Eileen Walters of Pemba Vale from the missing report also be a spouse?

I did wonder if Eileen was from Charlene - but it is Charlotte so not his Mother, and probably his wife.

But then what happened to Eileen if Mary was his wife in that death announcement, and, in fact, which Mary?

Kandi,

If your grandparents are deceased can you post their names, and area of living, as marriages are on line up to 1969 in NSW, so you may be able to purchase their cert.

If they are alive, send me a personal message with their names.
