SMH 18 Feb 1974 beloved husband of Vera Mary late of Milsons Point. Nthn Sub Cemetery

From Vera's death notice which you looked up and from her husband's death notice above, it appears there were no surviving chn. In Index, from 1933 - 1945 - no deaths of RICHARDS with f - Charles and mother Vera. Note that the death notice of father George says "John" while the death cert has "Jack" aged 34. This, if correct, would mean born in 1898/9. There is one male deceased. Thus 1. the age for John/Jack could be wrong. 2. John H b 1896 might have died and a second son born and given the same name. No death in NSW index. Also no death 1933 - 1945 of John or Jack that fits. However, in Probate Index, there's a death for John Harry GREGORY Hong Kong 13 Aug 1944 Acta. This can't be taken as the same person, though. I can find no logical WW 2 record. There's no death on Ryerson Index (roughly 1974 and later) 3. I can find no birth for Vera - I have CD index that goes to 1918. 4. It could be that they were interstate - "main roads" 5. My reckoning is that George's age at marriage should have been 25 not 28 as listed. However, that could be a transcription error from a poor numeral. Over to you for thoughts. Jan
