Common Grave
Hi Mike
I have just had a look at the burials website and now see what you mean by a common grave. What a disappointment and quite sad really. I was really hoping to find other family members written on a headstone along side Leonard Dace. My quest to find out more about him still continues...
Thank you again

Leonard Michael Dace
Hi Mike
I received the message that my great grand uncles grave was a common grave. Please excuse my ignorance but what exactly is a common grave? Before my Dad passed away he told me he remembered coming over from Belfast to attend Leonards funeral but as he was only 10 years old he could not remember any details about the grave or funeral (very frustrating)
Thank you for your help

Grave Indexes
Hi Mike,

Thank you for your message...much appreciated.

About a year go I visited Soouthern Cemetery with a friend who was looking for a grave. My friend decided to call in at the office at Southern Cemetery to ask if they could do a search for him and whilst there I asked about a grave myself. Anyway, cutting a long story short, I was told some of the burial indexes were transcribed wrongly. I believe thr burial indexes were sent abroad to be transcribed and uploaded to the Internet. true story this.

Thank and kind regards,


P.S. John Wood has been transcribed twice under L-C/E-641 and I-C/E-641...take a look. Also, my 2x great grandmother Ann Boon has been given 'I-C/E-641' when in fact she's in L-C/E-641

Hi Mike,

Thank you so much for the photos of the Carter grave. I have been researching the family for a while and it meant so much to my mum to see the headstone of where her Grandmother is buried.
Much appreciated,

Hannah Flowers Grave
Hi Mike,

Sorry it's taken a long time coming back to you regarding Hannah Flowers grave.
I'm unable to give you more direction than that i've already given you. Like I said, I found the grave once, but didn't have my camera with me. On my return, for a 2nd visit, I was unable to find Hannah's grave. There were lots of leaves and I think these hindered my search...I did wish I had a brush in the back of my car lol.
Anyway Mike, thanks again for taking a look for me...much appreciated. I will go again in the summer and take another look myself.
Kind regards,
