Bardoc Cemetery

BA -  Broad Arrow Registry District

The original cemetery which never ended up being gazzetted was thought to be too close to the town. However by the time this decision was made four burials had already taken place. It was officially closed in  May 31 1897. The following burials were supposed to be transferred to the new cemetery but this never took place.

PREST Alfred Ernest (AKA William):- Age 22yrs, Died 20.4.1896 cause ‘Fever, congestion of lungs’ (1st death)
