I do this because it is important to document history.
The memorials that I create and manage are not all related to me.
I am located in Victoria, Australia.
Currently stumbling my way through burial records in British India.
Edits to correct information are welcome (and encouraged!) Feel free to message me for any reason through the send message button at the top of this page. If you are related to the person whose memorial I manage, I can transfer ownership of it over to you if you would like it. Just send a request.
*If I have completed a photo request for you, a simple thanks would be appreciated.* If you want to use my photos for something, please give credit to me. Don't steal them and claim them as yours.
On some memorials, the death date may be the burial date. Sometimes I try and calculate a birth year if I know their age at death. I do this to try and give people looking an increased chance of finding a relative, as it makes it easier to find memorials.
Digital Cemeteries that I have created are the projects that I am currently working on, or have currently completed. I collect old photographs, and if I find one with a name on the back, I will try to add it to a memorial.
If I have made a mistake when transcribing an image, and I do not manage the memorial, please bring this issue up with the memorial manager.
"There is no Death! What seems so is transition;
This life of mortal breath Is but a suburb of the life Elysian,
Whose portal we call Death."
— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (Found on Isabella McLeod's Headstone 1857-1891)
"I slept in the great gum forest,
By one of its mountain streams,
Where tenderest touches and sounds
Mingled themselves with my dreams.
The stream, round a boulder's breast,
Rippled, as ripples the sea,
And over it swayed fern-fronds
Wafted me, darling, to thee;
So swiftly my darling to thee."
― (Ellen Clerk Songs from the Gippsland Forest, 1887)
