Burial Register

This copy extract was emailed to me by Bevan Stone on 16/11/2012.  It shows that Henry John Keenan, died on 22 June 1889 at the age of 47 and was buried in the Protestant section of the graveyard at the Gladesville (NSW) hospital, grave number 1089.  This grave and nearly all the others at the hospital can no longer be located.

The reference number (5832) is the number assigned to Henry John Keenan in the hospital's Register of Patients and Admission Book; the Date of Admission to the hospital is 22/9/1885.  For more on Henry's time in this facility see the the extract from hospital records that I prepared several years ago.
