« on: Saturday 30 May 20 04:57 BST (UK) »
Hi - I've found reference to Charles John GRAY, died 21/9/1913 and buried at Arbroath Western Cemetery. Can someone please let me know the details? And anything else about him that you can find? Thanks.

Not my person, but thanks for checking - at least now I know to keep looking! The one I'm after married Hester Rosetta Slack in Devon on 8/11/1883 but I know he came from Forfarshire & his father had the same name.

He is in Prahran, Victoria, Aust,  in 1897 (Baptism of Sydney MacFarland Gray)

Hester died Victoria 1934 you probably know.  She is in electoral rolls from 1914, Charles doesn’t seem to be with her

Added, HE died 1966, Coburg, Aust.
currently concentrating on a number of Staffordshire families.

By 1890 they were in Australia, where the younger children were born, but he then disappeared (before 1913, the year his daughter / my grandmother married) - I was hoping the grave would answer the mystery by proving that he went back to Scotland.

Do any of the children’s birth certificates have his age?

There seems to be a child (Gladys Muriel) born in Melbourne as early as 1885.
