Hi Florence,

"Fitz South" sounds as if your people may have died in the Melbourne (Victoria)suburb of Fitzroy. If so, they were probably buried in the Melbourne General Cemetery. I don't know of any on line indexes to this cemetery but you could write to them at:

Melbourne General Cemetery
P.O. Box 7
Parkville Victoria 3052
Australia

Another alternative is to contact The Genealogical Society of Victoria which I believe may have transcripts of the headstones. However they will charge a fee for this research. Their address is:

The Genealogical Society of Victoria,
Level B1
257 Collins Street,
Melbourne Victoria 3000
Australia
