Alice Sandes nee Crosbie
« on: Wednesday 11 November 15 13:59 GMT (UK) »
Hello everyone !
I am looking for one of my father's first cousins, the above Alice Sandes nee Crosbie, who died in Fishoek, Cape Town on 20th October 1932. Her full name was Margaret Lucy Alice.
The family has always said that she was buried in Muizenberg cemetery but her name does not appear in the records.  Perhaps she was buried in another cemetery in Cape Town ?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Many thanks in advance.

If you google her name there is a whole Sandes family tree on the net.  They also state that she died in Fish Hoek, but is buried in Muizemburg cemetery.

Although I cannot find a tombstone or death notice for her possibly if you search through the Western Cape death certificates on familysearch, but click on all imagesat the bottom, then Fish Hoek you might find it there.

Thank you for your help - we have found the grave in Muizenberg - Alice doesn't appear in the records but her grave is there.
Many thanks again, Liz
