There are a number of sites to try....

At Trove (Google) search the newspapers
The Argus 10Jul 1948

"Wants to meet his accident helpers
Mr Robert Dando, of Avon st, Geelong West, who was injured in a truck-car collision on the Princes Highway, near Lara, on June 9 last year, is anxious to get in touch with two men who assisted him immediately after the accident."

David Henry Dando's funeral notice appears in the Argus 27 July 1943 page 13
Irene Mary Grace's funeral notice is in The Argus on Sat 16 Oct 1948

I'm sure that you can find other info in the newspapers.

Try the National Archives of Australia. The following record is available (you can pay to have the record digitised)

Surnames: Dando, Cunningham, Glencairn,
Just working on Robert Glencairn Dando at the moment. Have a look at my site ... Glencairn was the name of a family farm, probably purchased by Robert's parents, as they named him after the place. My Mum always said she went back to the Earls of Glencairn... so I am heading that direction - Cunninghams and backwards. Love to hear from you and would appreciate photographs. Look at the one I have of Robert - amazing. I am in New Zealand... Jenny ( have attached the photo and expect to hear from you please)
