Hi Jean I found his wife at Fawkner, no sign of him though, as a bonus I found his mother in law buried with his wife. Will have to wait for the marriage certificate. regards Glen
On another point I am chasing information on his wifes fathers origins. He is John Michael Brooks born 1864 in Fingal, son of Joseph Brook and Mary Burns who were married in Fingal in 1862. Joseph Brook born abt 1828, somewhere and Mary Burns born 1839 Fingal, daughter of James Burns and Mary Rowe who were married in 1835 in Fingal. Both born about 1810, somewhere.
Again thanking you for your time and awaiting your advice
