Graveyards in Ceylon South and West Vol V

Graveyards in Ceylon South and West Vol V

Graveyards in Ceylon South and West Vol V

Ref: KAB-166

Supplied by Kabristan Archives.

A record of the inscriptions, memorials and burial records found in the graveyards of the south and west of the island from Negombo to Hambantota.

The records have been sourced from surveys and written records; many inscriptions (about 798) in the old Dutch language have been translated.

The deceased were administrators, planters, sailors and missionaries. Many tombstones have been lost since the 1910 survey but many new ones have been found in this later one.

The continuation of history in the South and West from the Dutch to the Portuguese to the British is clearly written in its headstones.
