21896/1976 LEWIS Geoffrey DIED PADDINGTON 062



13961/1977 LEWIS Alice Jane parents WILLIAM and JANE

Eastern Suburbs Memorial Park

Geoffrey Lewis 30-8-1976 11-1-1977 Ashes Rose Gardens, Garden L2, Position 0

Alice Jane Lewis 17-6-1977 23-2-1978 Ashes Rose Gardens, Garden L2, Position 0

I see no death notices for either of them, on Ryerson Index.

Jamjar

The 062 is the recorded age at death and the index summary that Jamjar has typed up is the usual way NSW BDMs index is released when there's no info on the deceased's parents provided by the informant. 

So 1976 minus 62 gives that  Geoffrey as born in 1913-1915.   So he would not be the child aged 6 on the Feb 1949 passenger list.  That child, born 1942-1944 may well be living, and if in Australia, then the expectation for personal privacy prevails to protect the living individual.

Thanks for picking that up JM  ;)
Her age also does not fit if she was widowed in 1925, so this appears to a be different LEWIS mother and son.

Yes,  I was surprised when you posted those naa.gov.au arrival details -  not to worry,  the LEWIS surname continues to be popular in rural and regional NSW, but our OP's person of interest.... her maiden name is rare in NSW.

I am on my E reader, so I cannot do live links, but there is a thread from 2008 about Alice Jane.  Her mum died in Pennant Hills NSW.

Do you  have  Jane Smith Durward's actual  date of  death ?  AS  stated  you would be able to ask SKS to look at  the newspaper for her death or funeral notice

Jenn

Following from that 2008 suggestion re a lookup via Ryerson (so pre-dates the digitisation of the SMH for Trove ... )

Sydney Morning Herald 15 May 1947. Funeral Notice for Jane Smith DURWARD, dearly beloved mother of Mary, Alice and Bella.  Aged 86 years.
https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/18026340 

ADD, I have not found a probate notice.

The only way to be sure is to get a transcription of the Alice Jane death certificate.
