Gravesites Of Tasmania


If you could spare a few dollars to help with the running costs of hosting this website to keep it alive would be very much appreciated.

Thankyou from Gravesites of Tasmania in advance.

Dear Linda

Thanks for your website, Gravesites of Tasmania.

I have been looking at the page for my great, great grandparents, William Pennefather Latham and his wife, Ellen Latham, in the churchyard of St John the Baptist Church, Ouse, TAS. .  

Since the photo of their joint grave was taken in 2007, our Latham family has restored their grave. In October 2009, we held a family thanksgiving service at St Johnís, Ouse, followed by a dedication of the grave and a family reunion over a lunch.

I have attached some photos of the restored grave and wondered if you would like to replace the old photo with some pictures  of their restored grave?  I also organised a plaque with some family history which we installed on their grave. A photo of that is also attached.

You are welcome to use all three photos. They could be useful for  family history research as well as local history. I am very happy to discuss with you should you want more information.

A big thankyou to Wendy and her family to be able to use the above photos.

It is great that people like to share with others.

The Headstone has been restored and looks fantastic and is a credit to you and your family.
