Yorkshire folk in Croydon QLD Australia

There are entries for these Yorkshire-born people in hospital admission registers for Croydon, Queensland, Australia, 1888-1896:

BELL Cain
BERRY Henry
CHARLSWORTH Samuel
DAVEY Hannah (see WHIP Hannah)
ECCLESTON William
ELGEY Ernest James
FLANNAGAN William
GILL John (see GILL William)
GILL William (or John)
GREGORY Robert
HASSELL John
HUDSON John
INGHAM Thomas
MILNER Thomas
OLDROYD Smith
SMITH Richard (b. Bradford)
SUTCLIFFE George
TURNER John
WHIP Hannah (nee DAVEY?)
WILLIAMSON John Staines

This is just a small selection. There are other Yorkshire folk among the 5,000 Croydon Hospital patients (1888-1925) listed on my Web site. The index to Croydon Hospital patients (including full Archives source references) is now on FindMyPast.

Register entries are not always complete, but there is provision for these details:

Name; date admitted; age; birthplace; occupation; religion; ship of arrival; how long in colony; place of residence; marital status; place of marriage, at what age, and name of spouse; names and ages of children living; number and sex of children deceased; father's name and occupation; father's present residence if living (or 'father dead'); mother's maiden name; disease or reason for admission; date of discharge or date and cause of death; sometimes additional remarks (medical history, social circumstances etc.)

Note that ship of arrival, place of residence, marital status and father's present residence are NOT shown on a Queensland death certificate; and a hospital register is sometimes the only surviving source of information about immigration.
