The contact for Amhurst Cemetery is listed below, I am not sure that Betty is still doing it but if not she should be able to point you in the right direction. I am 99.9% sure that there is not headstone for your Dorcas as I only found her name int he burial register not in the headstone register.
When you work out how to scan I would like a copy of Dorcas death certificate. It isn't that hard really - I can walk you through it over the phone, which I have done with many people.
Anyway - I am glad to have been of some help and don't hesitate to ask. Starting off is always daunting but my most valuable piece of advise I can give you is to always and I mean always record where you get any information from regardless of how small. If it is off a web site, then record the location (url), the persons name and their email address and most importantly the date you found the information.
Is this your gg grandfather
Cemetery Geelong Eastern Cemetery
Register # 96490
Given Names JOSEPH
Service Date 15 Feb 1865
Date of Birth
Date of Death 13 Feb 1865
This entry indicated he is in the COE section but does not give a grave number, so it is very likely he is in an unmarked grave. I am over 2hr drive from Geelong so it is not possible for me to go there.
Sorry it is not more but hope this is of some help to you.
If you would like to send me the details to my email address
with the details I look to see if I have their records. Do you have a death certificate for them - if so I also collect them to match up with records I have, as a confirmation.
Scan the certificate and save it as a pdf file and then send it with your request details and I will see what I can find for you.
Hi Heather. We may be more than Genealogy Wise friends, my Grt Grt Grandfather was Arthur Laverty. Arthur was born in Antrim, Nth Ireland and died in a mining accident at Butchers Gully, Fryers Town, Victoria. His Daughter, Sarah Jane Laverty, became my Grt Grandmother.
Have a great day---- Tony.
