Documenting Archives

Omeka S logoWe encourage you to search our Omeka S database of vital statistics gathered from death certificates of burials in Red Hill Cemetery.

In addition to the 448 death certificates, which have already been transcribed and uploaded, we have located another 355 that list Red Hill Cemetery as the place of burial. These death certificates date between 1928 and 1943. We expect to fully transcribe and upload these over the next year.
