MCSWAIN Warrnambool Cemetery - Completed
« on: Saturday 21 May 11 00:25 BST (UK) »
Does anyone have access to Warrnambool Cemetery burials and/or Headstone inscriptions?

Hugh Allan MCSWAIN died in 1981 at Warrnambool, his wife Isabella died in 1969 also at Warrnambool

A sister of Hugh - May Brown formerly Richardson died in 1965.

Any help with burials with any of these greatly appreciated

Thanks Dale

Hi Dale,

They have a very helpful caretaker who lives onsite. It may be worth giving him a call.

Hi Dale,
I am not able to find a Headstone Inscripton for HUGH ALLAN or ISABELLA at either WARNAMBOOL CEMETERY or WARNAMBOOl LAWN CEMETERY.

For your interest their death records

I do not see a death recorded in Vic for MAY BROWN in 1965 with father McSWAIN

There is however

Again, I do not see a MI at Either of the WARNAMBOOL Cemeteries.  Shall have a look around the area.

 
There are a number of Inscriptions in the name McSwain at the Warnambool Cemeteries.  I can PM them to you if of interest.

Hi Dalet,

I've just found this site and come across your inquiries about Hugh Allan McSwain and his wife Isabella Watson McSwain. I know this was a few years ago but I am curious about your interest.
These are my grandparents..my mums mother & father.
They are buried together in the Warrnambool cemetery but there is no headstone on their grave. I'm not sure if you would like any other information on them or other family members but I could certainly help out if you do.

Kind regards
