My kids were brought up with a folk song called Go Tell Aunt Rhodie, about a grey goose who died in the mill pond a 'standing on her head. Is this the same song?

Yes. When I checked it had history of both spellings.
I have a little school singing book from the early 1950s and it has this same song in it but they use the name of Aunt Nancy. I think Rhoda and Rhodie sound better.
Yes, Treeseed, I found that a lot of different aunts needed to be told but my memory is of Lonne Donegan's Skiffle Group's 'Aunt Rhody'.
Go tell any old aunt really.
I love Lonnie Donegan but I've never heard his Aunt Rody. I'd like to do so.
