Genealogy Sunshine Coast volunteers have been researching all the military burials in Buderim cemetery and writing up stories of the soldier’s life. There are approximately 650 buried there so it is taking them a while to research as they work through them in alphabetical order!
Currently the stories have been written for all surnames from A-G, so if you have an ancestor, relative or friend who is buried in Buderim and fought in one of the wars, then you may be able to find out more about them from the stories the volunteers have written.
The story covers their whole life from birth to death, with information about their families and with pictures of the headstones and other relevant photos where the information is available.
Their story may be purchased for $10 by contacting the Society via email: email@example.com. Please include the full name of the soldier and any other information you may have.
