    • PAYABLE REQUEST SENT 30.01.2018 TO SAGENEALOGY WEBSITE
      I am seeking the DATE AND PLACE of DEATH of my maternal great grandfather OSWALD GWYN STOYEL. b.8 Nov 1884 Port Adelaide SA, married BERTHA MAY KANALEY on 17 Apr 1907 at St Augustine Church Unley SA (family church location). they had female 1907, female 1909, female 1911, male 1914, male 1916, then divorced in 1 Apr 1919 (divorce reported in Police Gazette-Adelaide) and my mother says he was never heard of again.
      to find him I have searched cemetery, migration, military, newspapers, and interstate BDMs plus several FB genealogy groups. It was FB group that pointed out on your website under STOYEL BERTHA MAY comes up with one death. Berthas (my great grandmother, died at Belair SA, RegNo53A/5987 on 11 Aug 1968, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY marital status W, AND Relative 1: Oswald Gwynne Stoyel [DH] etc etc.

      Now since the last two lines of information align with our knowledge, but it wont come up on your website with a summary (logged off) or in detail (logged on) at all.

      BACKGROUND TO OSWALD GWYNN STOYEL: once an Honours student receiving accolades, became a school teacher, resigned as a school teacher 5 years prior to marriage (of my wealthy great grandmother) and 8 months after wedding first child born. Divorced a very wealthy lady after 5 children and 12 years marriage. Then nothing,
      So can you please tell us where he died, what date he died and where is his grave please since your record of BERTHA MAY STOYEL in 1968 (technologically very recent) states twice of his passing viz "she was a widow and the name of her deceased husband [DH]. You have no idea HOW MUCH my ailing mother will go to her rest knowing these details. She is now sick at 85 yoa and often he comes into her discussions.
