Statistics

Burial form number BN17962 refers to Elizabeth Thompson who, on 11 May 1948, was the last person interred in the cemetery. Although number BN17962 was the last burial number issued, this does not represent the total number of burials performed in the cemetery.

12 forms contained details of 2 people on each form--twins buried together, or a mother and child who were buried at the same time. Also, 31 people who perished in the "Dunbar" and "Catherine Adamson" shipwrecks, who were buried in Camperdown cemetery, did not have burial forms completed for them, because the bodies could not be identified.

92 forms are missing. It is not known whether they were cancelled. A few forms do exist which are marked as being cancelled.

Analysis of Age at Date of Death

The categories 'hours,' 'days,' 'weeks,' 'months' and 'infant' are used on the burial forms. The term 'months' is usually used where the child's age is less than 2 years. Occasionally a child's age is shown on the form as 1 year, rather than as a number of months.
