Maybe this is accurate…
Cremated. Ashes: Anglican 1, Row V, Plot 6. Name not inscribed on headstone.


Hi Dee, a little more input….
Percy William Owen died 15 May 1976
Brother to Evelyn Ernest Owen died 1 April 1949

Both lived at 82 Cliff Rd Wollongong in 1943 (on the Aust Electoral Rolls as same address)
Parents as indicated on the Memorial for Percy (Peter) William Owen # 149837279

Hi Dee

Thanks. No hurry.

Yes sometimes monuments/headstones are erected on the wrong plots or maybe odd numbering.

Cheers

Hi Dee

Yes I was after the Owen family graves. The Owen family plot numbers range from plot 2 to plot 6 (Ernest William & Eleanor Winifred in 2, vacant plot 3, Charles Alfred plot 4, Percy William plot 5, Constance Elaine plot 6)however the photo shows the grave as 3 panels (plots) wide ???

Also I was after Thelma Joyce Woods, died 26 June 2011, Roman Catholic, South Row 38, Plot 6 at Wollongong Cemetery.

Many thanks

Brian

RE: Percy William and Grave location?? Mem #149837279
Headstone Location for Percy William Owen

Percy William Owen
Memorial # 149837279

I don’t think this is accurate for the burial location
Sect. C of Eng. 1 Row: V Site: 5

Especially since the Date of Death is 1976
As you say this is a much more recent burial – to be situated in the older site where Constance and Ernest William Owen are buried.
I think the burial plot is a mistake. Percy William is probably buried elsewhere, perhaps Wollongong Cem. office could confirm his burial location?
I pulled this from the Wollongong Cemetery website
Here is a sequential list of the Anglican section 1 ROW V Site 1 through Site 10

Name Date of Death Allocation Details for Burial
William Hall Owen 18/03/1908 WOLLONGONG CEMETERY ANGLICAN, Section 1 ROW V Site 1
Ernest William Owen 16/03/1946 WOLLONGONG CEMETERY ANGLICAN, Section 1 ROW V Site 2
WOLLONGONG CEMETERY ANGLICAN, Section 1 ROW V Site 2
Eleanor Winifred O'Donnell 6/1/1990 WOLLONGONG CEMETERY ANGLICAN, Section 1 ROW V Site 2
Site Reserved WOLLONGONG CEMETERY ANGLICAN, Section 1 ROW V Site 3
Charles Alfred Owen 28/03/1911 WOLLONGONG CEMETERY ANGLICAN, Section 1 ROW V Site 4
Percy Owen 18/06/1915 WOLLONGONG CEMETERY ANGLICAN, Section 1 ROW V Site 5
Percy William Owen 15/05/1976 WOLLONGONG CEMETERY ANGLICAN, Section 1 ROW V Site 5
Constance Elaine Owen WOLLONGONG CEMETERY ANGLICAN, Section 1 ROW V Site 6
Site Reserved WOLLONGONG CEMETERY ANGLICAN, Section 1 ROW V Site 7
Site Reserved WOLLONGONG CEMETERY ANGLICAN, Section 1 ROW V Site 7


Seems that the Percy William Owen is a location mistake I think (unless the Percy who died in 1915 allowed the next Percy William to be buried in same grave)

RE: Constance Owen Mem # 149837278
Hi Dee
Great to hear from you. I think the Percy Owen is a completely diff person. Not related.
It does seem a bit confusing.

However without other supporting evidence it seems like he was not related to Constance and husband.

Hope all is well with you too. You are doing a marvelous job.
Best

Re: Grave Pic
Thankyou so much for Mervyn Rogan's Gravesite pictures. I was also looking for Mrs Mavis Askew but I am not sure if she was buried in Wollongong Cem. or perhaps cremated. I do appreciate your efforts very much.
