    Notes 
    • Although the name is shown as Edward Thomas Minter the record at www.awm.gov.au suggests that Edwin served as a Private in the 6th Infantry Battalion - 1 to 9 Reinforcements (December 1914 - September 1915) and that he emabarked on the HMAT Runic at Melbourne on 19 February 1915. Age is shown as 23 (Edwin would have been 21); labourer, single, next of kin Mrs E Minter [possibly "Elen"], mother, 33 Norfolk Street, Globe Road, London, England. C of E.

      Records relating to Edwin's WW1 service can be found at the National Archives of Australia. The records all bear the name Edward Thomas.

      The above is confirmed by the record of Edwin's brother Frank, which shows the same next of kin (but as Mrs Hellen Minter).

      The Australian 1931 Electoral Roll for Malvern, Fawkner, Victoria includes at 30 Winter Street, Malvern:
      Edward Thomas Minter, labourer
      Mary Alice P Minter, home duties.

      The Australian 1936 Electoral Roll for Malvern, Fawkner, Victoria includes at 30 Winter Street, Malvern:
      Edward Thomas Minter, labourer
      Mary Alice P Minter, home duties.

      The Australian 1937 Electoral Roll for Malvern, Fawkner, Victoria includes at 30 Winter Street, Malvern:
      Edward Thomas Minter, labourer
      Mary Alice P Minter, home duties.

      The Australian 1943 Electoral Roll for Malvern, Fawkner, Victoria includes at 30 Winter Street, Malvern:
      Edward Thomas Minter, labourer
      Mary Alice P Minter, home duties.

      Australian Electoral Roll, 1949 for Malvern, Higgins, Victoria includes at 34 Winter Street:
      Edward Thomas Minter, caretaker
      Mary Alice P Minter, home duties
      Robert Henry C Minter, body builder.

      Australian Electoral Roll, 1954 for Malvern, Higgins, Victoria includes at 34 Winter Street:
      Edward Thomas Minter, caretaker
      Mary Alice P Minter, home duties.

      It's not clear what happened after 1954. Mary Alice died in 1960 but I cannot find an Electoral Roll entry for Edward or Edwin Thomas Minter except for an Edwin Thomas Minter who appears as a clerk, then an «u»accountant«/u» in the 1963, 1968 and 1972, as follows:

      1963, for Malvern, Higgins, at 56 Edsall Street, Edwin Thomas Minter, clerk.
      1963, for Glen Iris, Chisholm, at 4 Orford Road, SE 11, Edwin Thomas Minter, accountant.
      1968, for Glen Iris, Chisholm, at 4 Orford Road, SE 11, Edwin Thomas Minter, accountant, with Robert Henry C Minter and his wife.
      1972, for Burwood, Chisholm, at 4 Orford Road,Ash 3147, Edwin Thomas Minter, accountant, with Robert Henry C Minter and his wife.

      It's possible that this Edwin Thomas Minter was the son of Edwin Thomas senior (and therefore brother of Robert Henry Coquard Minter) but this hasn't been verified.
