8096/1911 MERCHANT William to MCFARLANE Maud

William death and funeral notices, type 11 into small, white box:

https://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=lL5f5cZgq8MC&dat=19560816&printsec=frontpage&hl=en

This is his wife’s death, but if it is the correct couple, then the mother’s name is incorrect:

21821/1956 MERCHANT William Edward 74 YEARS LIDCOMBE PARRAMATTA

21821/1956 MERCHANT Maud Annie mother Maud Annie CAMPSIE

Her death notice does mention that she has a sister OLIVE, so I think it is the correct pair. Type 29 into small, white box: https://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=lL5f5cZgq8MC&dat=19610603&printsec=frontpage&hl=en

I can’t find births for the children of one Alexander and Catherine in Australian States, on FamilySearch, FreeBMD, ScotlandsPeople, or in NZ. ???

Nor can I find the Withers marriage.

Yes William Alexander McFarlane who died 1948 and who married Isabella OSullivan is the one, I have got that Information but on neither of the records does it say who his parents were. It has been suggested that I need to get his Death cert to find out who his parents were but I don't know how I can do that
Thank you all for all your help

You purchase a transcription, pay online and they email it to you.

However, I can see that with lockdown rules, it could be an issue at the mo.

I use this one: http://nswtranscriptions.com.au/

90/1948 MCFARLANE William Alexander parents WILLIAM ALEXANDER and CATHERINE SYDNEY

Alexander McFarlane's 1903 burial is in a non-catholic part of Rookwood

http://www.rookwoodcemetery.com.au/deceased-search-engine

but I can't get his details to load properly, only a pic of the headstone

Now isn’t it odd that he isn’t in the catholic section. It isn’t loading, but the inscription is readable and it does say wife Catherine and only son Alexander.
