Hello everyone,

I was wondering if I could request a look up as well. I am looking for:
John Hampden Edwards d. 14 Dec 1843, buried 15th Dec
Georgiana Elfrida Edwards d. 15 May 1853, buried 17th May
John Henry Edwards d. 14 Nov 1841, buried 16th Nov
Frederick Robert Edwards d. 12 March 1842

I do not know where they were buried but I am assuming it was the Devonshire St Cemetery.

Thanks so much in advance. Mel

I have checked the book and am sorry to say no luck for any of your Edwards family

Hi Mel, some of my family members went to Bunnerong but others went to Rookwood Independent, where their burial date is given as the date of reburial i.e. 1901, not 1850, so it may be worthwhile searching there. The Independent and Catholic sections have on line search facilities, but the Anglican section is out of service and requires a phone call. Good luck, Fran

Thank you so much Cass & Fran. It's a shame they're not in the book. I'll try Rookwood, Fran. Thanks for the tip. Mel

Hello Cass

I wonder if Francis How/Howe and possibly his namesake son, died 1809,  are recorded at one of the early Sydney burial grounds?

Have a look at "Old Sydney Burial Grounds-Inventory of Burials", there's a Frances Howe Drummer with the NSW Corps listed there. Fran

Hi
I have looked and can find no reference to Francis How/ Howe in  the book,  Frances Howe the drummer Franh1946 mentioned, he is not recorded either, I checked a couple of times as I thought that I might have missed them, even got the magnifying glass out as the print is a bit small

sorry

Cass
