Thanks! Maybe I will have time when I visit SA next! I tried to be brave to tackle the Dettmar family.. what a brickwall! Maybe I should give up and try again when I move back to SA!

Not at all! The records are readily available back to at least 1910, but it
requires a personal visit.

If you cannot visit yourself, you can enlist a friend or a paid researcher.

Thanks Maureen,

I am interested in people who were buried there before 1960.. suppose it won't
be available in my lifetime still...

Hi Jorge

It seems apparent that 1990 was the year when they first started capturing
data electronically, so it was simple to load existing data to a website.
According to their on-site press statements, City Parks seems to have plans
to capture earlier burial data, working backwards from 1990 -- but no-one
knows just when any of this will begin to appear on the website.

I noticed that only graves from about 1990 are recorded.. very frustrating
but I hope they will eventually record all. I am still desperate to find any
