Bernard Hall died 1988; buried Maclean Lawn Cemetery
Posted by: Keith Wood (ID *****7003) Date: December 15, 2012 at 12:11:19

I entered Bernard Hall's name & his Australian Army service number into google & was delighted to be directed to the following:
Which gives me an image & location of his gravestone; and thus his date of death.
The extra details on the page include his birth date & service number which confirm it is the correct Bernard Hall.

I have no idea how he came to be buried at Maclean; as I previously had him in Petersham near Sydney, although I had lost track of him c1950.

Unfortunately I can't search for his death record as he died less than 30 years ago. I also can't search the trove newspaper archive, as it doesn't extend to 1988.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I might gain further information? I wonder if there might be mention of his death in local newspapers, for example.
