I did look in the Eltham Cemetery and still could not find the record. Tried under both Arthur Harold and Harold Arthur. Was it a habit to reverse names? If so it is really confusing

yes it was anafred,
in fact, they were usually called by their second name. So if Arthur Harold was so registered then he was probably called Harold or vice versa :( bit strange

Well I am more than sure they did that just to confuse me. It is so frustrating trying to find this grave. I would love to at some stage put some small memorial there for him. Now to researching what on earth they would have been using Ammonia on, only thing i can think of is cleaning cowsheds or washing with so many little ones in the house this is a possibility.
