Hello Patricia,
You might have a hard time finding children of couples married after 1906,as the parents names don't appear to be listed with the childrens names.Makes it almost impossible to work out family groups.
Just an added thought if you are near a major city their major libraries may have holdings of Electoral Rolls and copies of newspapers dating back to the 1800's.
Charles Bennett WILLIAMS and Ella May (STOCKDALE)WILLIAMS both appear on the Karrakatta Website ,but read through the codes on the bottom of the results panel and it willl tell you if they were buried or cremated.
Anyhow here are some websites to access which might help you.
( http://www.openwindows.com/marriage/search.htm - WA Marriages 1906 - 1942.)
( http://www.justice.wa.gov.au/_apps/pioneersindex/default.aspx - ( WA Births 1841 - 1931.) ( WA Marriages 1841 - 1905.) (WA Deaths 1841 - 1925.).
( http://www.mcb.wa.gov.au/NameSearch/GenResearch.html - Karrakatta Cemetery(Perth,WA) - Pinnaroo - Freemantle - Midland and Guilford..)
( http://www.awm.gov.au/nominalrolls/ww1/embarkation/index.asp - First World War Embarkation Roll.)
( http://www.ww2roll.gov.au/ - Second Worl War Nominal Roll..)

The Nominal Roll and Embarkation Roll are brilliant,and if you find your person on the Embarkation Roll you will almost certainly find a digitised image of their file at The National Archives website at : http://naa12.naa.gov.au/scripts/ResearcherScreen.asp (this search panel shoud enable you to find your person's digitised record)

Regards to All,
Paul.
