Yes, I have tried limiting my search by place, date and newspaper title. And its default is to sort by relevance.

I had also found those birth, marriage and death references and the announcement in the Government Gazette.

What I could not be sure of was whether Owen Parker (1914-1967) was the husband of Ada Craig Guthrie (1902-1964).

The additional information you have all provided from all those sources other than Trove is great, because I think it is enough to show that he was.

Thank you, Neale1961, CassT, matthewj64 and wivenhoe.

That's another loose end in my tree tied up; as Ada was 49 when she married it's pretty much certain there were no children.

Hi The death Funeral Notices confirm that Owen was the husband of Ada, the daug of the late  Mr and Mrs Guthrie of Cardiff Wales

Oh, that is brilliant, thank you. Conclusive proof.

But I still cannot find their death notices on Trove. The latest edition of the Sydney Morning Herald available to me there is 31 December 1954. So no wonder none of my searches found them.

The only explanation I can think of is that Trove must have different versions for Australian and non-Australian users.

There is no difference to Trove access for Aussie and or Non Aussie's. I found the Notices via NSW State Library access, as a NSW resident I am eligible to join the Library.

My previous offer "I have found the Death Funeral Notices for Ada and Owen in the SMH. If you would like copies send your Email address to me via a PM." still stands
