This cemetery is associated with Yarra Bend Asylum Cemetery which operated from 1848 to 1925. Most of the people who died in the Lunatic Asylum were buried in the cemetery. There were over 1,200 burials at the Yarra Bend Lunatic Asylum Cemetery before it closed. From the 1880s most were exhumed and re-buried in MELBOURNE GENERAL CEMETERY. If the family paid they were buried in single graves, otherwise they were buried in unmarked common graves.

MYHERITAGE - PHOTODATER

This is a free new feature that estimates the year a photo was taken using AI technology. PhotoDater uses an AI model developed by MyHeritage that is trained to understand nuances such as clothing, hairstyles, facial hair, and other objects that are characteristic of a particular decade. It then calculates the estimated year the photo was taken, together with a confidence level and average error range. The feature doesn't work on photos that are newer than 1990 or older than 1860.

ANCESTRY - IRELAND, ROYAL HOSPITAL KILMAINHAM PENSIONER DISCHARGE DOCUMENTS, 1724-1924

The Royal Hospital Kilmainham, located near Dublin, Ireland, dates back to 1680 and provided a home for retired soldiers for the around 250 years. While some pensioners surrendered their pension to the hospital and lived there (“in-pensioners”), many more lived outside the confines and received their pensions elsewhere (“out-pensioners”). Pensions from the Royal Hospital Kilmainham were administered to soldiers who had served for at least 12 years in the British Army and were discharged from Irish regiments, as well as from some English, Scottish and Welsh units.

In 1942 prisoners of war were captured in Rabaul by the Japanese. They also captured civilian internees in the area. The Japanese attempted to transfer these prisoners to Japanese territory. The first group, which was made up of 845 POWs and over 200 civilian internees left Rabaul on 22 June 1942 on the Montevideo Maru, a freighter requisitioned by the Japanese navy, for Hainan, off the southern coast of China.

ANCESTRY - ENGLAND, UNITED GRAND LODGE OF ENGLAND FREEMASON MEMBERSHIP REGISTERS 1751-1921

This collection contains membership registers listing men who belonged to the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE). Freemasonry is a fraternal order that traces its roots back to the Middle Ages, and a Masonic Grand Lodge has existed in England since 1717. A rival Grand Lodge was established in London in 1751, and the two came together to form the UGLE in 1813.

The UGLE is the governing body for Freemasonry in England, Wales and certain countries overseas. Each Masonic lodge has been obliged since 1768 to return to the Grand Lodge, on an annual basis, a list of its members. These returns are used to compile the membership registers, described as Contribution Books, which are reproduced in this collection. While the majority of the registers in this collection are from lodges in England, registers are also available from lodges in Wales, Northern Ireland, and several countries overseas such as Canada, Australia, India and South Africa.

Victorians are included. The membership registers are searchable. Images may be browsed.
