Do you have a copy of his death cert?   Does it not have the following info?

Place of birth (city and country). Marital status at time of death. All marriages (place of marriage city, state & country, full name of spouse, age at the time of marriage). Parents' names and occupations, including mother's maiden name.

No I do not have his death cert I only know from his Cemetary Transcription that he was born 1894 he married twice but I have not got the certificates I only have whats on the Australian Marriage index I had checked Scotlandspeople but like you have not found him
There was a William Alexander McFarlane b 1867 who married Ada Ward b1882 in 1905 and I am wondering if this William Alexander McFarlane had been married before and could be my William's father but cannot find the evidence

Funeral notice says service at Rookwood Catholic Cemetery
http://search.catholiccemeteries.org.au/ (search with space between Mc and Farlane)

His inscription reads 'William [Alick] McFarlane'
The same inscription has 'Isabel McFarlane' (in database as Isabel S Mc Darlane) service date 11 Aug 1924 aged 32y
An adjoining site has Catherine McFarlane service date 14 Nov 1911 aged 49y
Death and funeral notices 1911
