Hi Terry,
Death 84 is just saying it was a death notice and she was 84yo. Manly Daily is the newspaper the notice was placed in.

If you google Ryerson Index, you will be able to request a lookup of the death notice.

Hi Terry,

Re, your info ... "Gladys (Senior) came back in 1954 to UK to live with her sister (GLEDHILL)."

It appears as though she went back to England for a visit, and then returned prior to her husband, William SIMS, death.

SIMS G I 1900 F 1919 London Australia Sydney

It appears that his two sons, went to WW2.

Maybe, this is the death of Ernest SIMS in 1981, however, I cannot find the death registration on the NSW BDM's website, to confirm, his parents names.

Sydney Morning Herald, 27 May, 1981.

SIMS, Ernest Henry (Tiger), - May 24, 1981, late of Mona Vale, devoted husband of Patricia, loving father and father-in-law of Kathie and Don, Robert and Barbara, beloved poppie of Jodie, Angela and Christopher.
Northern Suburbs Crematorium, tomorrow, (Thursday), May 22, 1981. (The date is obviously a typo).

Marriage of Ernest SIMS in 1947:

As I am interested in that side of my tree on all accounts.I sent for my Fathers Military Record,and it takes upto 12 MONTHS to get it,sent for it in May & funnily enough phoned today to see how it is going and still poss after Xmas. AAhh well it will come ONE day.

Hello, I am replying in regards to Noley Belle Sims, Joseph(yossip)Grubisa & Gladys Sims. Noley & Joe are my grandparents so am glad to find others researching the family to as it has been a struggle to find out alot. My grandfather was born in Yugoslavia & Wyong is on the Central Coast, NSW, Australia. Gladys (senior) is my Great Grandmother) & Gladys is my Aunt whom I can confirm has passed away. I have not got alot of information but I am always able to ask my Grandmother (Noley)if I need to confirm anything I was hoping that maybe we would be able share whatever information that we may have to further each other in our quest to compile our trees.
