Note: At Cairns Family History - check against their card catalogue doesn't show this inscription. This suggests the plaque was installed after 1983-4. Cairns council's "new" system is about 18 months old. Previous data location unknown. (May need to FUP Brisbane archives)

Council records (microfiche at Cairns Family History) show she was an Old Age Pensioner and that the plot cost £5.

Discussion with Aileen suggests that the info on the death certificate would be the sort of details that would have been supplied to the hospital on admission.

Death
after 1930 (aged 37 years)
Note: Recollection from Uncle Ken: Stories recounted to him by George suggest he was taken into care by police due to the death of his birth mother. This would suggest Mona would have died in 1916. This was about the time care of George reverted to Kwong Sue Duk. Specific knowledge about George's birth mother is unclear during George's lifetime.

Subsequent electoral roll data suggests Mona was still alive at least in 1918, and was not listed as deceased on her mother death certificate in 1930.
