    From my research Dorothy Wardle did not get married here in Victoria and both she and her husband died at Mt Eliza.
    The Victorian Probate Index lists:
    Eileen Ethel Lester died at Mt Eliza on 14.8.1982 and Hugh William Lester died at Mt. Eliza on 17.4.1972.
    George Clifford Scantlebury, retired surgeon, died at Mt Eliza on 8.7.1976.
    Alfred Scantlebury died at Ballarat on 1.6.1861.
    They all left wills.
    However I had the Wardle death dates form the same source and now can not find the notes. I will look tomorrow,
