i am a little at sea with Australian records and resorted to just googling in vain!

Just looking at the possibility that Hannah married William DUCKER in 1887

Marriage 1887 William DUCKER and Anna WOODCOCK at Petersham

Death 1933 Hannah DUCKER, father William, mother _ , age 90 years

Obit http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article167860306

Memoriam http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article166955187

Obit says she came to Australia 47 years ago and would have been 91 in October.   She had been living with her daughter Mrs Goodwin.  Memoriam says she had a son and daughter

But the grandchildren on memoriam don't seem to match and her age is a little out so I am ruling this now.

Ros

Please explain more about this "ruling" authority.

It's an expression JM  :)  https://www.oxfordlearnersdictionaries.com/definition/english/rule-out

But yes I was too quick to rule it out as it looks very probable now.   The grandchildren mention in the memoriam are probably Gertrude's children.

The grandchildren mentioned in the memoriam for DUCKER, are the children of the daughter Gertrude.

Ros, 

I am not familiar with the
expression you used ... you wrote "I am ruling this now"    That expression is not at the link you provided, but I now gather that you may have mis-typed,  as you are now explaining about ruling it out.

Is this your family?

Census England 1881  at Prince of Wales Wortley Ecclesfield Yorkshire
WOODCOCK Hannah  38y   head  widow                            b. Barnsley Yorkshire
WOODCOCK Walter    15y   son engine fitter                      b. Ecclesfield
WOODCOCK Tom        13y  son   scholar                            b. Ecclesfield
WOODCOCK Arthur       6y  son                                         b. Ecclesfield
WOODCOCK Annie Elizabeth    18y  dau machinist              b. Ecclesfield
WOODCOCK Gertrude     3y   dau                                      b. Ecclesfield

Is this your Tom?

BDM NSW death
21591 / 1935  WOODCOCK   Tom    parents John / Anna  @ Gosford

I see Tom WOODCOCK in Gosford area....1903 ish.......gardener...no obvious wife, children but when he dies there is someone around who knows him?

"...this will be Arthur at least accounted for..."

Did any of Hannah's children remain in England?.  Can you identify them.....plus marriage, death
etc....so we know who to look for in Australia.

Thanks Jamjar  :)

JM, I had to dash off to RNSH and thought I'd post what I had found with a caveat - like I'm doubting this now.  It is a little surprising that the memoriam was from the son and daughter and then only mention Gertrude's children as her grandchildren - no mention of Arthur's children.   But I didn't have time to do any further research then..
