Buried St Thomas cemetery, West Street, North Sydney. An Act of Parliament in 1967 designated the area as 'community land' and the Cemetery was handed over to North Sydney Council. The conversion of the Cemetery to Rest Park in the early 1970s was the Council's first heritage project and the Rest Park was reopened in 1974. William's gravestone was not found on personal inspection of the cemetery in 2005. The park is mostly grassed over and very few headstone remain.
