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.

Hi Janette. Yes I had seen all that but Lindsay is after details on the headstones, if they exist. The NZSG on line transcriptions included the Old Oamaru graves but do not seem to include Oamaru Lawn. If it has been transcribed it's apparently not on the database. If that is the case then the answer lies in Oamaru or with those of us with access to the original fiche which might include Oamaru Lawn.

I'm not sure if you're still interested in William Lyon Gibson and Annie McFadgen Gibson, but I am one of their great grandchildren and a grandchild of William Lyon Gibson (their son with the same name) and his wife Constance Maud Gibson.  I have photographs of the headstones in the Oamaru Cemetery.  Please feel free to get in touch if you so wish.
