Buriel Location of Donald Alfred Folkard. Died at Nymagee. N.S.W.
« on: Tuesday 09 July 13 12:57 BST (UK) »
I'm trying to locate the gravesite of my father. Donald Alfred Folkard who burnt to death in December 1951, at Nymagee N.S.W. I have his death certificate details, but nothing else.  He was 24 years of age.
Registration # 6825/1952.
Given Name : Donald Alfred Folkard.
Father's Name : William Hope Folkard.
Mother's Name : Wealthy Daisy
District : Lake Cargelligo

We would be most grateful, if some how RootsChat can help shed some light on his gravesite.
Thank you.....Don

An Official Transcription of that NSW death cert will provide details from the funeral director as to which cemetery/crematorium.  I notice you have the index details for the death registration.  The referece no. is for NSWBDM.  They have appointed several Official Transcribers.

High there Don, my name is Wayne Scott and I am new to this whole genealogy thing but I came across your 2013 post re Donald Alfred Folkard's burial location.
I am wondering if you found the info you needed?
It would appear that Donald was my mother's brother. Her name was Joyce Folkard and I am trying to compile as much information about her as possible.
These things I know. She was married to my father Samuel Garnett Scott in Hillston in 1944, they divorced in the mid 50's after an abusive marriage. I heard a rumour that Samuel's sister may have actually been married to your father?
My mum's sister Betty is still alive and living in Forbes NSW and I have been in contact with Betty's daughter and she is going to fill me in when I do a road trip down that way in the next month or so.
I can find quite a bit on the Canacott side (her mother) but as yet haven't started her father's side (William Hope Folkard)
I would be very keen to know if my mum had any other brothers and sisters other than your father and Betty. I believe they may have had a brother Allan who was killed in WW2?
Any help would be great.
By the way, which part of Australia do you live? I am in Ipswich Qld
Thanks
Wayne

Hi Wayne

Welcome to Rootschat  ;D

According to his profile, Don posted and hasn't been back since.

He would have received a notification that Simon had replied, but since he didn't reply and his profile is set for 'Instant notifications but only for the first unread reply' he won't receive more.

Added to that his post count is set at 1, so he won't be able to use the personal message system.

I will try and send a message to him but as it stands, it's not looking hopeful, but fingers crossed.

Hello Wayne - I was very interested in your post about the Folkards.  I am also researching this, and would like to share information with you, if you are willing.  My maternal grandfather was William George Canacott (1865-1932), a younger brother of John Canacott (1856-1913) whose daughter Wealthy Daisy Canacott (your grandmother, I believe) was my 1st cousin 1x removed, and possibly the first Canacott to set foot in Australia. Your mother Joyce was therefore my 2nd cousin, which makes us 2nd cousins 1x removed.

To answer the question you asked, your mother had four brothers and one sister, but as your post was over a year ago, you probably know that by now!
