I see there is information about Fred Quintrell on there - it might not be mine as I know of at least one other in Australia (found by googling).

My Fred committed suicide in 1901.

His full name was "Fred Wood Quintrell" and he was incorrectly put as "Frederick" on his death certificate.

I would like to find out when he went to Australia (Ancestry have non-assisted passage records) and if he made it onto the electoral rolls as there is a Fred Quintrell there (probably not him).

Edi, thanks for the information. I'll note it for future reference.

Fred was in Sydney in January 1901. He shot himself through the head with his own revolver and died on 8th January. He is buried in Rookwood Cemetry.
