Jools,

Following is the information from Rookwood cemetery transcriptions (SAG)

Rookwood Old Catholic Mortuary 1, section 5, row 16
grave 711

Ann Adelaide Robbins died Dec. 1896 aged 63 years
Inscription illegible, headstone fallen/broken

...er? Augustus Robbins died 8.8.1911 aged 79 years
Inscription - Interred Wilcannia

Frederick John Neaves
grandson of above died Passchendaele France
aged 22 years 3 months
Interred 7.10.1.....

You could find out what date he was buried from War records if needed and further info on him
There is a War graves site as well as the National archives and the War Memorial that you could check

Ann is listed on death index as Annie Adelaide ROBBINS d. 1896. Father listed as John B, Mother was Mary A
She was born c. 1833 if her death age is correct
There are a couple of possibles in NSW births but she may not have been born in Sydney
A copy of their marriage certificate might have more information

Let me know if you get stuck trying to find war info on Frederick Neaves and I could have a look for you
You would at least be able to get a correct date for his death and more about his war service
Did you get my message about Walters christening in Sydney?

Jean
