N is for Nudgee, Qld and Newland, Gloucs

Join me on my Cemetery Searching expedition for the 2023 A to Z Blog Challenge. I’ll be re-visiting some cemeteries and preparing for a wish list of others. Some family members will be mentioned but I also have an interest in German family graves as well as those of people born in Co Clare Ireland.

Nudgee Cemetery, Brisbane, Qld

Nudgee Cemetery is a Catholic cemetery in Brisbane’s northern suburbs. The first burial there took place in 1867. I hadn’t realised until reading their history and about pages, that non-Catholics may also be buried there.

The cemetery offers a search option for those buried there. http://www.nudgeecemetery.com.au/content.php/deceased-search

There are quite a lot of relatives buried in this cemetery but the closest is my mother who was interred there in 2021.

All Saints Churchyard, Forest of Dean, Newland, Gloucestershire, England

We visited this graveyard back in 1992 and took some photos. I’d been searching unsuccessfully for any of my Partridge family who lived in nearby Coleford. John and Eliza Partridge’s son was William Partridge who came to Moreton Bay (later Queensland) in December 1855.

Newland Churchyard, Gloucestershire, England
I do not believe that these Partridges are directly related but perhaps I should do more research on this line.

    1. Yes, the lawn cemetery section works like that and the burial takes place in front. You then organise a standardised memorial. The older sections are very individual though.


  1. I often research families who might be related such as your Partridges in Newland – the connections don’t always work bu sometimes they do. These days I usually add the information to Wikitree so that somebidy else can find it there and even if they are not my relatives I hope somebody will find the research useful.
