  • Function / Content
    This series comprises of plot books for Wunghnu Cemetery (VA 5236). The plot books are arranged by section and compartment within the cemetery. This information is recorded at the top of each page, followed by a drawing detailing the graves in that area of the cemetery. Plots where someone has been buried detail the below information:

    - grave numbers- names of persons buried in each plot
    - dates of burial
    - other numbers possibly referring to register entries.

    Other information sometimes recorded includes:
    - exhumations
    - plot resales
    - other notes about burials/plots.

    Other markings such as brackets along the sides of a number of graves seem to indicate familial relationships between those buried.

  • Recordkeeping System
    The arrangement is by section and compartment (denomination) within the cemetery. Plots are arranged within each section by allotment number.
