Looking for a mother and son, Elsie Charlotte Rowland (nee Dunn) and her son John Mitchell Rowland. Elsie also was known by the names Toddles, Tods or in later years Toddy. They came from PERTH, Western Australia
Elsie was born 1904 in Fremantle, Western Australia, and was last known living in the Wandana Flats, Curtin, Subiaco, Perth in 1980. According to the electoral rolls. She divorced her husband Avon (Locke ) Rowland in the 1950s, he remarried but it appears no contact was kept afterwards
Her son John was born 1942 and was living with her till 1968 and then in 1972 was living 7 Gibney Avenue, Glendalough, Mount Hawthorn, Perth. No record of him exists on Australian electoral rolls after this.
Elsie's parents, brother and daughter were cremated and their ashes scattered at Karrakatta Cemetery, but have checked and Elsie and John are not there.
If they have died, online Births and Deaths records are only up to 1971:
Reason for interest, Elsie's brother Norman Dunn died in a WW2 plane crash in the UK in 1943. A memorial was created for the crew and I have traced close relatives of all the crew bar Norman. He was a famous guitarist playing with the ABC Band, and had played with Larry Adler and Fats Waller. I did find a 1st cousin who hadnt ahd any contact with the family since about the time of his death. I did find a fellow Air Force trainee and a lady who used to sing with him, but they knew nothing of his family.
My fear is that both Elsie and her son are deceased, but have not been able to find any information to confirm this. There was another brother, Eric but know he died in 1986. The memorial was unveiled in September 2013 and have been looking all this time
