Missing Graves

Regrettably there are a number of graves where burials have taken place, which we were unable to locate. These have been detailed on a separate list.

Because different burial numbers were used for some second and third interments, it was possible that some of these burials already have their graves located with other interments.

Many hours were spent trying to locate the missing markers. At one time, we used metal detectors to determine if any markers had been covered by soil and were just below the surface.

It was very disappointing that these graves had been lost. It is hoped that by the work we have now done, that it will not happen in the future.

Perhaps by the publication of this list, there are some relatives of those listed, still living in the area, who might be able to enlighten us as to where the graves are so that they might be recorded properly.
