In part:

"George Lester Married Louisa Jane Hancock born in "1852" (according to Headstone on Grave), died 4th February 1932 at Hamilton NSW - age 80 years. Buried at Sandgate Cemetery NSW with George Lester - Methodist section."

Note: There is some doubt about the birth reference as Joy Gorton has advised by email: "George Lester Married Louisa Jane Hancock born in "1852" (according to Headstone on Grave), died 4th February 1932 at Hamilton." Being born in 1852 seems right as this would mean that she would have been 24 years old at the time of her marriage and not 16. It would also mean that she was 80 years of age at the time of her death which appears to be inscribed on her headstone.
