Hello, just wondering if there is anyone living in Oamaru who may be visiting Oamaru Old Cemetery and might be willing to check whether there are any headstones located on the GIBSON graves at Block 133, Plot 32 & 33 and Block 518, Plot 6 for me please?

Many thanks,

Lindsay

Hi Lindsay,

Usually the council has this information on their records,have you tried emailing them? they may even take photos for you.

Lindsay, the blocks seem to end at 220 before a couple of ashes lawns are listed. Can't see where a block 518 fits in but there is a Gibson couple in 218. There are 16 Gibson references in the index. Can you give me a full name for 518/6? Might be able to track them down, perhaps at anther cemetery.

Lindsay, I now see you are after Constance Maud Gibson buried at the Oamaru Lawn Cemetery. I can't seem to find that one on the database. Perhaps the inscriptions have not been recorded. Found no reference to that cemetery at all.

I noted that the Old Cemetery records were originally transcribed by the North Otago Museum. Perhaps they could be worth an enquiry re the Lawn Cemetery.
