Captain James SIMPSON (1892 - 1932) is believed to be buried in the Officer's section of the cemetery. In April 2019, his grandson made contact with me and asked if I could find his final resting place but without a plot map this wasn't going to be easy. Eventually by working out the dates of burials that had headstones, James worked out where his grandfather James may be buried.He also has many documents showing his grandfather's life in the army.


Thank you for the information about your grandfather James. It's nice to think that you have found him.

James Simpson's grave is thought to be to the right of the red headstone.

William SINCLAIR was a Staff Surgeon and was buried in the cemetery on 4th May 1871. Chaplain W. Ponsford took the service.

No headstone.
