Thank you for your kind and helpful response.
As it turns out, I just upgraded my Ancestry sub to "global", so I assume I
should have access to these Aussie records. If not, I'll revert for
and thanks again,

There is a record in 1978 of the death of a Frederick Grace SMITH age 80 in
Victoria Australia. Additionally he appears 6 times in Electoral Rolls
1958-1977 in Alphington Victoria.
If you do not have access to Ancestry.com
I can send images.

I am currently researching Frederick Grace Smith, born 22 Feb 1898,
(but where?). I have found the entry on his family in the Journal of
the Dutch Burgher Union (1935, Vol 24, No. 3, pp. 102-04), which
provides valuable information on his antecedents -- but little on him,
per se. I also found the following write-up about him on the web, with a
of his medals:
This is all valuable information, for which I am grateful.
However, I continue to try and ascertain the following information on F.G.
- where was he born (Colombo?);
- where and when did die?
- what happened to his daughter, Joyce? (born 30 Dec 1931).
Thank you for any assistance one might be able to offer.
PS: I should, perhaps, point out that he is still listed in the 1961
edition of Ferguson's Ceylon Gazette.
