Welcome millsy48.

The New South Wales death indexes don't tell you much so it's hard to say if this is your Edmund without his age at death. Death certificate would give you more information, or you can obtain a transcript of the death certificate for about half the cost. Edmund and Emily's marriage certificate for 1890 may also include parents names.

Died: 1934.
Place: Rockdale district, New South Wales.

Father: Hugh.

Neither of these are the Edmund Joseph Jones you are looking for.
Hugh and Amelia son was born 1881 Edmund was married in 1890.
William and Jessie's son born 1881 and died in 1882.
Emily Green was born in Victoria, i am currently looking for her sister Henrietta Green and have some information regarding Emily.
