E. R. Warne & Sons, Undertakers

This photo was thought to have been taken in Tasmania, but it is very much Victorian. There isn’t a great deal of information about the business itself. E. R. Warne & Sons, Undertakers, operated in that name from 185x to 1900. The business was in son Walter A. Warne’s name from 1900. It was located at Barkly Street, Footscray, from its beginning, but also opened in Yarraville and some funeral notices mention Newport. Edwin Richard Warne was born in London in 1828. He married Mary Susannah Nash in 1849, before making the journey to Australia (Arriving in May 1853 on the Prince Arthur). He was a carpenter, an undertaker and former Councilor and Mayor (1878) of Footscray. He died on June 20, 1907. The photo of the business is part of the John Etkins Collection at the State Library of Victoria. If you would like the full sized image, Click Here (Tif, 5559 x 3968, 63.1m).

The Grave of Stella Marron

On my photographic wanderings, I came across this old photo of the grave of little Stella Marron, from the John Etkins Collection at the State Library of Victoria. Nothing was known about the grave location or the child in the description. So, it is the grave of Stella Veronica Marron, daughter of Patrick Ambrose Marron and Catherine McKeand. Born in 1900 at Booleroo Centre, South Australia, she died of epilepsy on May 14, 1903. Her grave, as shown in the photo, is located at Pekina St. Paul’s Lutheran Church Cemetery, corner of Booleroo Road and Bouda Hut Road. A much larger version of the photo is available from the State Library of Victoria. Click Here (Tif, 3896 x 5767, 64.3m).
