Looking for information on Thomas Perry Burchell, was a coachmaker in Johnson St, Glasshousr, Collingwood. Was there in 1857 and had a son Thomas Henry Burcell to Sarah. Keen to find out more about his movements after this time.

If it's any help in tracking Thomas and locating a death date ...

Sarah's 1898 obituary states she was the widow of the late T.P.Burchell, and that she had gone to live with her son at Mirboo 17 years previously (c. 1881).

Dear Anne, if its any help you say???
You have no idea how much help you have been finding that obituary!!! Thankyou so very much.
Are you researching the Burchells? or are you just a whizz at finding things? Now I just have to find which house she lived in and go to Mirboo North to look for her grave and where she lived. Thanks so very much again,
sincerely,
Kate Allen.

Hi,
PROV is Public Records Ofice Victoria, any search engine should bring it up.
You need to open the site.
Look to the right hand side and select Online Indexes and Digitised Records, then select Victorian Wills, Probate and Administration Records 1841-1925 and then type name into search box, select result you wish to view and wait till the record loads, this takes some time due to the size of the will.
