Hello I am looking for information for a Joseph Henry Harding born in 1896 in Birmingham; an electroplate worker, or working in the Jewellery trade. Immigration records show he went to Melbourne in 1913 but can not find any information for him in the Australian records.

If you have any information I would love to hear from you

thanks

"Australia Death Index, 1787-1985" has two Joseph Henry Hardings. One says born in Prahran, Victoria and a matching birth record can be found, but here's the other one.

Name: Joseph Henry Harding
Death Place: Nhill, Victoria
Age: 77
Father's Name: Harry
Mother's Name: Angeline Churchman
Registration Year: 1959
Registration Place: Victoria
Registration number: 23720
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1882

The birth year is obviously rather different from what you've got. Do you have any information on your Joseph Henry Harding's parents' names?

There are also numerous Joseph Hardings with no middle name specified, I think you'd really need parents' names, again, to look at them with any confidence.

Hi Rachel,

Yeah, I had a look from your profile and found those names, I was just having a search around now. Sorry to say I couldn't find anything in ancestry.com.au's death or marriage records that matched.

Ok Thanks very much for looking, it could have been the case that he was just visiting Australia in 1913 and moved on to somewhere else
