Surnames: DONNISON, DATSON
Hi
Is it possible for someone to look-up burials at Waverley Cemetery for the names DONNISON or DATSON. I know definitely that John DONNISON was buried there in 1909 and Thomas DONNISON in 1913 but any others? Also DATSON?
I would be very grateful for any help.
Thanks.

Hi Elspeth,

None of the others that you mentioned are on the CD. They could be there however without a headstone.

Thank you Sue for DATSON info. I have yet to connect WILLCOCKS in to tree but am sure I will. Was that all the Datsons buried there? Hoping to visit the cemetery later this year from Wellington, NZ

Hi Elspeth,

Yes that was all for the DATSON surname. There could be others but the CD just has those with headstones. Good luck with it all.

Cheers

Hi Aussiegumnut
you are a star (or should I say a blossom). I am also looking for burials in Waverley Cemetery and last weekend trudged around it in the boiling heat – with no luck. Would you mind looking up my family, or telling me how I can. I searched every post to workout your secret but only got to 'you have some kind of CD'. Looking forward to hearing from you.
cheers Kate

Hi Kate,
I have got the Waverley and South Head Cemetery headstones CD - so only those with headstones. If you want to give me the details I will see what I can find.

Cheers
Sue
