On Monday I visited Waverley Cemetery at Bronte, Sydney. While
browsing the headstones I came across a huge JOHNSTON Family Vault.
I had my digital camera with me so I took photographs of all the
inscriptions. Unfortunately, some didn't turn out too good due to
them being too high or too far away.
I have typed up the inscriptions into an Excel spreadsheet and
placed it on the group website. It may seem a little confusing but
I typed it as I found the names on the photos. It would have taken
ages to try and sort out the family, though it would be an
interesting exercise to draw a family tree!
I hope someone finds it interesting, if not useful. Feel free to
copy it to your computer. Anyone interested in any of the photos
can contact me, I'd be happy to send them on, or post them on the
I will place one photo on the webpage now.
