Australia's Largest Online Memorial

Recently, through the Guild of One-Name Studies, I heard about the Heaven Address website - Australia's Largest Online Memorial. This website provides obituaries, funeral notifications, and burial records for Australia, and New Zealand.

The 9 Pask(e) records found were predominately from Macquarie Park Cemetery and Crematorium, Sydney Delhi and Plassey Roads, North Ryde, NSW Australia. In some circumstances they covered over members of their families. These included:

  • Francis Pask died 1991
  • Irene Emily Pask née Starr died 1982 (wife of Francis)
  • Walter Otto Paul Paske died 1984
  • Hildegard Freda Paske died 2004 (wife of Walter)
  • Colin Leonard Pask died 2007 
  • Mrytle Colleen Pask née Taylor died before 2007 (wife of Colin)
  • Robin Hugh Pask died 2007
  • Eliza Eileen Pask died 1945
All these records are currently not linked to a main family, except Colin Leonard Pask who was the son of Leonard Pask. So hopefully someone will be able to provide more information that will enable us to associate them with a family group. 

In the meantime, I have recorded all the New South Wales births, marriages, and death indexes. In these BMDs, there is the following Pask, Paske, and Pasque information:
  1. Births 1788-1909: 25 entries
  2. Marriages 1788-1959 26 entries
  3. Deaths 1788-1979 52 entries
This information will included in the next website update.
