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.

Amherst Cemetery
Mrs Betty Fleming,
Secretary,
P.O. Box 53,
Talbot 3371

The whole certificate would be wonderful - thank you.

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.

Hi Heather,

You maybe able to write to the Geelong Cemetery for information on his grave, who purchased it, if it is a perpetuity on it, if it is a single grave or multi one, if he is alone or not, etc.

The Geelong Cemetery website http://www.gct.net.au/search.html#deceased has a link on it that you can contact them on.

If I can be any further help.
Best of luck.

Hi Heather

Is this your gg grandfather
Deceased Details
Cemetery Geelong Eastern Cemetery
Location COEO*X***X
Register # 96490
Surname PANKHURST
Given Names JOSEPH
Service Date 15 Feb 1865
Date of Birth
Date of Death 13 Feb 1865
Age 43


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.

Heath, I have Amherst tombstone photos and there are no persons by that name in there.

Hi Heather,

Yes I have some details for Amherst Cemetery.

If you would like to send me the details to my email address
genstudies@optusnet.com.au
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.

Regards Anja

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.

Hi I noticed a comment about wanting to know about the English Cemetery in Geelong. I know the following: the ENGLISH cemetery is the old Church of England section at the Eastern Cemetery and the Geelong Cemetery is usually the Eastern cemetery
also. There are many unaccounted for burials at the Eastern as not all the
Church Burial registers exist before 1876. If you want to know more contact the Geelong Cemeteries Trust. ask for Pam Jennings (info located on rootsweb discussion board). Hope this helps regards Pam Shakespeare :-)

Have you tried Joseph's death certificate? That usually gives the length of time the individual has been in the State, and the country/county of origin. Only problem with this, is that the person registering the death may be only guessing, but it is a start. Did you only try the passenger lists for ships arriving from overseas, or have you tried interstate ones as well? Perhaps he came overland. Gazetteers can sometimes place an individual in a certain time/area. Good luck. Denise

HI Sandra. My Great grandfather was Walter Pankhurst or Walter Harward Pankhurst. I have his marriage certificate and he was married in 1878and on his cdertificate it had his age listed as 22 which would have made his birth date in 1856. I do think he would been born some where around Burra. I never expect to find a death certificate for him as he just cleared off one day when the kids were small and was never heard of again. they think maybe he fell down a mine shaft around Kadina. He had one brother an about 3 sisters who I have found on the marriage recdords in the QLD library but couldn'tfind a birth record for any of them. They were Emmanuel Adelaide Mary Rebecca and sophia. Also I would be interested in fineding a death record for my GG grandfather Joseph Pankhurst He was Walter's father. He was married to Mary Purdy in Adelaide in 1847 but it does not say how old he was then or who his father was or where he was born. The certificates over in SA are so different to the ones here in Queensland. Thank you for replying and hopefully one day I might get the information I need ... heather Laverty

Hi Heather,
You sent a message to Aust. Board to find a Pankhurst in SA.
Can you give me name of your gr grandfather??
There was only one before 1906 and that was Dorcas.
Cheers Sandra (SA)
