As part of searching for the death date of Harriet CASTLE (nee LEWIS) in the late 1800's, I wrote to the Uniting Church Records and Historical Society as the Dennis Island, NSW community was predominately Methodist where they lived during the 1870's. For the record, Dennis Island is near Bathurst, and not an island! While my ancestor was not listed in their records, they did send me a list of grave inscriptions for Dennis Island made 18th March 1971. I am reproducing the short list here in case someone finds an ancestor.
If anyone has a photo of the cemetery I'd like a copy to post with this entry.
A couple of deaths seem not to appear in the NSW BDM indexes - Sarah and Henry Oram Pellett, for example.
EDIT JUN 2011: Name mis-entered in original index - should be PETTETT, which does appear in the NSW BDM index.
