Hi Karen

Alfred didn't survive childhood.

The parish register index cards indicate that entry #2637 in the Holy
Trinity Lyttelton burial register records the burial on 14 August
1913 of Alfred Henry CONLON, aged 9 years. Parents were John and
Jane, resident at Lyttelton.

The index cards showed that Holy Trinity Burial register also had an
entry for Jane. Entry #541A is for Jane CONLON, 52, res Christchurch,
buried on 21 June 1932.

The only other CONLON index card was for the April 1912 marriage of
William Aloysius CONLON to Annie QUINN at the Catholic Cathedral,
Christchurch. William was a medical practitioner. Both were normally
resident at Reefton, NZ.

Would you like the details as on the marriage certificate?

Hope this helps
