NOTE THAT NOTICE IN THE PAPER GIVES HER ADDRESS AS "LA FROUDA" IRENE PLACE, PRAHRAN.

She is buried in the Ballarat Cemetary.

Note Digger Index has death listing as follows:-

This is where all the confusion lies with this relationship. Father incorrectly named and should be Nicholas Thomas and Grace Grylls Death registered in Armadale in 1917 No 7034 - Death and Marriage Certificate confirms all information as correct

Many Nankervis researchers have the wrong information due to the incorrect entry in the death registration on Diggers!!!!

Death Certificate copy states died at 6 Irene Place, Prahran. Suffered Senile Decay and died of Cerebral Hemorage
Informant was John Nankervis, Son, of 24 Ascot Street North, Ballarat North.
Grace was buried 24th August, 1917 in Old Ballarat Cemetary. The Certificate states that she was from St Just, Cornwall and had been in Victoria or 60 years.
Only three children alive at her death - Twins John and Jane and thier sister Minnie.
