Philip A Smith of Rockingham, Western Australia
« on: Wednesday 30 September 20 01:56 BST (UK) »
Philip A Smith was born in England in Apr/Jun 1925 and lived in Rockingham, Western Australia.

I am told that he died in about 2008.

Can you help me find out when and where he was buried or cremated?

Thanks, Cass, that's the fellow!  I will ask the State Library if there was a death notice or obituary.

Is this possibly his marriage?

Thanks, but I think that is the marriage of a different Philip Smith because Philip Alwyne Smith was born in England in Apr/Jun 1925 and his parents were Charles Romulus Smith and Clara Smith of Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire who never emigrated to Australia.  Philip Alwyne Smith had a first marriage in 1946 in Berkhamsted which ended in divorce whilst he was working in Sarawak, Borneo.  I do not know when and where his second marriage took place or the name of his second wife.
