Re: Albert John DOWNES

Parkville is very close to Moonee Ponds.. Parkdale looks to be about 20km S of Parkville.

Parkdale is not on the list.

No such doubt about this one.

Death Reg# 5674/1952 DOWNES Flor Maud 74 DAVIS Jos Eliz BERRY d. Moonee Ponds, Vic.

The Argus (Melbourne, Vic.) - Mon 26 May 1952 p.11
DEATHS
DOWNES.-On May 24, at her home, 74 Waverley street, Moonee Ponds, ...

Does not say at his home for Albert so probably in a hospital.
