RE: Mabel Maggie Bourne
Lillian Tall is uploaded. I didn't see that you already had the plot number on there, so I sent an edit. Just decline the edit.

Heather. Get onto the highway from Orange and turn left at the big roundabout into Bradwardine Road as you come into town from the direction of Orange. Entry via second right turn in Bradwardine Road, through the Maranatha Lawn Section and turn left into the older section of the cemetery, heading East, "down hill" towards the sports oval adjacent, and with the Mitchell Highway from Orange/golf course on your right. Go down about three quarters of the way (track veers slightly to right then straightens up) and you should be able to pick the grave out on your left. If you enlarge the photo, you can see section K in the background, a railed grave nearby, and in the distance an unmistakable house in Suttor Street.
Good Luck. JW

RE: John Thomas Brown b.1815, d.1885
Hi Heather, finally a successful one. I had left your John Thomas Brown request till the very last of the 99 requests listed as I feared getting a 100% "no success" result for you, but lo and behold I found him, but not really where the map I was given placed him, making the map somewhat suspect. This makes me wonder re the others which I had to say "no result" to!
Two suggestions, as I have not kept details of your various requests.
1. Maybe with any that I might have said were not in either set of transcripts available to me, you could ask the originator of the page where the info came from to create the memorial and search in that direction. (Maybe wrong cemetery etc.???)
2.If you wish to resend the details of the balance to me at I will start from scratch and do a final walk through the cemetery in a few weeks when the snakes have gone to sleep. Give me any other names which might be on the stones as sometimes the main name can be obliterated but it may be possible to pick out dates, spouse names etc. to confirm the correct stone.
We have had much vandalism over recent months and more was obvious today. This means many stones could be face down, shattered etc. and the locals are doing a fantastic job repairing and restanding the various stones, which might mean your "missing" ones could come to light
Best wishes
John Williams
