  • Function / Content
    This series comprises the register of burials for the Wunghnu Cemetery (VA 5256). All Victorian Cemeteries Acts required cemeteries to keep registers of burials recording the interment details of deceased persons at the cemetery.

    Information recorded for each burial includes the deceased's:
    - name
    - age at time of death
    - date of death
    - parish of last residence
    - burial location within cemetery (tablet, allotment, section, compartment numbers).

  • Recordkeeping System
    This Register is divided into three sections. The first section records re-openings and public burials in chronological order. The second section records burials in chronological order. And the third (the largest of the three) is arranged alphabetically by surname of the person buried.

    The two smaller sections that precede this third section have do not have any entries beyond the year 1900.
