Citation details: CLARKE EVELYN H 1523/1900 WILLIAM H LILLIAN BELLINGEN
Note: The headstone for Evelyn is inscribed that she was 42 years of age at the time of her death in 1931. Yet the story of her suicide includes the information that she was 31 years of age. This would have her born about 1900. This seems more likely as it fits with the birth registration for Evelyn H CLARKE.
