EANEAS MATHIAS LORENZ d 1 Mar 1983 bur KARRAKATTA CEMETERY WA
« on: Sunday 11 February 18 07:32 GMT (UK) »
I was unable to locate a headstone photograph and hope a kind soul visits the KARRAKATTA CEMETERY in WA and can provide a headstone photograph?

Eaneas wife Gladys remains are also buried at KARRAKATTA CEMETERY in WA and I would dearly love a photograph of her headstone as per the attached. 

That is unless a site other that Australian Cemeteries and Find a Grave hold a photograph.

Attached is a clipping of the burial location.  Should a photograph be secured please PM me.

Hi Westy,
  Another source of photographs is Lorraine's Cemetery Records - a wonderful source of free grave photos..

  Unfortunately her Karrakatta Cemetery photographs do not seem to include your people. 

   Thought I'd mention it for future reference.

Karrakatta offer a photo service.
http://www.mcb.wa.gov.au/research/photo-service

Areas of Karrakatta have been renewed and headstones and plaques removed and the areas re-used.

Map with the renewed areas shown with an R

I note that one is a cremation record and the other memorial only.  Location in the Garden of Remembrance EC which appears to be an area which has been renewed and reused and a note on Eaneas's record to contact Administration re location.

I suggest you contact the administration with your query and they may have a photo of the memorial.  I found them most helpful with my request for information a few years ago and photos of the graves prior to renewal were emailed to me.  Email address on their website http://www.mcb.wa.gov.au/

Hello Rosbal and Cando,

Many thanks for your assistance and the new website for headstone photographs.  I hadn't heard of Lorraine's Cemetery Records before o much appreciated for that bit as well. :)

I contacted the cemetery administration as recommended.  There is no photograph available so shall complete the process to obtain a copy.

Regards,

Westy
