to find out what is on the death cert you will need to order it.

I have tried looking for the birth but NSW seem to have a 100 year rule, ie births not available after 1914.

Welcome Alison.

To save yourself a lot of time I suggest you obtain George and Jean's marriage certificate for 1940. This should name George's parents, age when married, place of birth, occupation and so on.

When you search the N.S.W. Marriage Index you will find Jean's maiden name recorded as HAFEY.
