Marriage indexes for Melbourne Victoria
« on: Monday 01 November 21 10:04 GMT (UK) »
Hi Folks
I'm looking for a marriage between 1980 and 1992 for a Michele Mary Williams who married a man surname Grassham.

Michele was born 1959 in Melbourne, and died in 1992 in Melbourne, therefore she may have married in Melbourne

Michele's father was Albert Horace Williams

I have looked on Find my Past, Ancestry The Genealogist and Family search.org but can find no marriages for Victoria, as I live in  England I'm not familiar with the states in Australia so maybe I'm not looking in the right place.

Are bmd indexes available for Melbourne for the 1950's onwards on line anywhere, if  there are what site do I need to look at please, there are a lot of family members born, married and died there which I have just discovered.
Thank you
any help very much appreciated
youwho

It will be restricted access anyway, until 60 years after the registration of the event.

Are you sure she married? Her probate entry is for a Michelle Maree Williams, not Grassham - died 18 Jan 1992 at Bayswater North, probate granted 5 May 1992.

It's interesting that she died and was buried under the name Grassham but her probate was under Williams. It was granted 3 months after her death - perhaps some legal point?

Hi I had a look on Ancestry and  they have a record in the
Victoria, Australia, Wills and Probate Records
for Michele Mary Grassham Death 7 Feb 1992 Place Coburg  Beauty Consultant Grant Date:1.5.2002
Also I found the death notice in the Age in the  Australia, Newspaper Vital Notices, 1831-2001
no luck with the funeral notice,

If you would like a copy of the death notice send me  your email address  via a PM.... sorry I dont know how you look up the Probate records
