Cemetery "to do" list

This page is administered for the Global Cemeteries Project by members of the Queensland Cemeteries Team. Assistance is needed for: -

  1. photographing headstones and memorials
  2. transcribing memorials
  3. creating profiles for those interred or memorialised at Nerang Cemetery (some listed in the table and not yet created) and linking them to the wider tree
  4. categorising existing profiles of those interred at Nerang Cemetery to ensure they appear under the cemetery category
  5. adding profiles and information to the sortable table of interments
  6. checking the table for missing information and/or errors
  7. re-checking the table periodically for new or amended information

Progress tracking

The Interments table is intended to be on a separate free-space page, leaving this page for general information about the cemetery.
