Although the headstone shows he died in 1975 and BDM's record the year as 1975, it is highly likely both of these are wrong. According to probate files he died 15 December 1974 and an obituary appeared in the East Charlton Tribune on 29 Dec 1974. The listing on BDM's showing 1975 is believed to be a simple typo, however the base data seems to be correct. According to his death certificate he was born at Hallam, Victoria. Hallam is an early name for Buckrabanyule, however his birth cert shows Lake ? and as it is not possible to determine what Lake it may be, birthplace will be left as Victoria.
