Title: Offer: Bowraville and Argent's Hill cemeteries
Post by: RoserAncestors on Saturday 27 May 17 14:15 BST (UK)
I can take photos of particular gravestones at the Bowraville and Argent's Hill cemeteries on the NSW Mid North Coast.

Hi,

Looking for two graves at Argent's Hill.

Sarah Ann BALLARD (nee WALKER) buried 31 Oct 1902.
Luther BALLARD buried 2 Nov 1906.

Unsure of the existence of headstones.

Regards,

Bruce Cain
Kempsey

Hi Bruce, no worries, I'll try to get out there this weekend if it's not bucketing down. I've wandered through that cemetery before and I remember that there were a number of Ballard graves. I've been meaning to photograph the whole cemetery as it's quite small so this will spur me to do it!

Thankyou for that.

Looking forward to a hopefully positive result.

Just a thought too, you could try emailing Nambucca Valley Council and asking if they have any information on your two names in that cemetery. I believe they have maps of plots and maybe they have other information. Their contact email address is on their website (scroll to the bottom): https://nambucca.nsw.gov.au/cp_themes/default/home.asp

Hi Bruce, I went out today and got some shots of the cemetery at Argent's Hill - the graves you were looking for were there. If you send me your email address via personal message (don't post it here) I can send you some high resolution images. Attached are two small photos of the two headstones - Sarah's is broken.
