Hi Carmel, many thanks for reply. Should you have any Irish queries please feel free to ask, I may (or may not ! ) be able to help. What I will try to do is to trace C of E records for that town, or census records from circa 1945 to 1952 but no luck yet as I do not know how to do this, but hope springs eternal !. Thanks again and keep up the good work. Gloria.
Hallo Carmel, I have checked out your great compilation of names from Yallourn Graveyard, Victoria, but the name of my Father's cousin who died in that town in 1952 was not there, I presume he did not have a headstone but can you advise where else I could search for his grave,? the following are the details. RANDAL THOMAS HURLEY had emigrated from Co.Cork, Ireland just a few years previous to his death, he was born in 1918 in Kilmeen parish, Co.Cork and died in Yallourn in 1952 aged 34, he was Church of Ireland (Cof E ) I just discovered what part of Australia he went to a few days ago. Would it be probable that he could have worked in the electrical plant in the town??. I would be delighted to get any information at all about him. Many thanks, Greetings from Ireland. Gloria Binions.
