Can anyone please tell me the importance of Bellary in the history of the
British Families. There is a listing for a large number of year 1800 plus
graves in a Church of England Cemetery, London Mission Cemetery, Military
Cemetery and a Roman Catholic Cemetery, said to be near the Railway
The compilation can be found in the below mentioned book - this copy can
also be found on the Internet search through google.
*"List of European Tombs in the BELLARY DISTRICT with inscriptions Thereon,
*compiled by J.J. COTTON, June 1894" *
Does anyone know where the burials after 1900 took place in Bellary. If
they were buried in the same Cemeteries as noted above or were there any
'New' Cemeteries as is mostly the case in cities.
Much appreciate an answer to this as early as possible. Plan to visit
Bellary next month.
Like Ronnie Johnson, I'm also interested in Bellary. I know of no extra significance
than it being a British military town, possibly an important midway post between Hyderabad
and Bangalore. Certainly it was occupied by units from the Madras Horse Artillery around
1820. Ronnie - if you are going there and find the name Thomas Avery anywhere would you
contact me? Thanks and kind regards, Colin.
