WALDECK buried in KARRAKATTA Cemetery West Australia

WALDECK at KARRAKATTA & other Perth Cemeteries to July 2011:











































Wallace Wilfred NELMES - Bristol, England to Christchurch, New Zealand

Wallace Wilfred NELMES was born in Bristol England in 1871
* a son of Samuel Albert Nelmes (1842-1903) & Ann Jessop Lawrence
* a grandson of Thomas Nelmes & Sarah Short of Staple Hill, Bristol
- he was a Railway Guard
- he married Grace CAMPBELL in 1903
- he lived at 15 MacKenzie Ave, Christchurch

- he is buried in PLOT 83 - BLOCK 48 of Linwood Cemetery
- Grace was born in Springield, Christchurch
- she died on 25th July 1968 aged 86 and is buried with him

two of their known children were:
1904 - Annie Jessop Nelmes
1908 - Ivy Adeline Jessop Nelmes

From the BUSH ADVOCATE - 8th August 1907
On Saturday morning, the Oxford-Kaiapoi train, due about seven o'clock at West Eyreton, had passed that station two miles, when a man was seen lying stretched out, apparently dead, on the road near the line. Guard Nelmes and the engine-driver, Stirling, pulled up the train. They found the man quite benumbed with the sharp frost, and unable to move. With assistance, he was lifted into the guard's van, and conveyed to Kaiapoi. There the police conveyed him in a van to the police station, where he was wrapped in blankets, and attended, and a doctor was called in. The man's name was ascertained to be Frank Brown. He was a passenger on Friday evening's train to West Eyreon, arriving at 7p.m. and got off to go to a farm where he was employed, about two miles away. He had with him a bottle of whisky, and sat down by the wayside and drank its contents, and fell asleep. This was on an open and exposed part of the country, and considering that there was from 8 to 10 degrees of frost, it is almost a wonder that he survived the experience. He was able to appear at the Kaiapoi Court report the Press, and was ordered to ay 12s 6d expenses.

From the STAR - 8th March 1909
.. Wallace Wilfred Nelmes, second-class guard, appealed against his retention as second-class guard, and claimed that he should have been promoted in the classification list of April, 1908, to first-class guard. He conducted his own case

Wanganui Chronicle, 11 November 1902 FATAL ACCIDENT
- A MAN DROWNED IN THE RIVER ... Quite a gloom was cast over Aramoho on Sunday morning when it became known that an accident had occurred on the River, by which a young man name Frederick Freeman had lost his life. It appears that at about ten o'clock on Sunday morning some members of the Aramoho Rowing Club went out for a row in the four-oared out-rigger, the crew consisting of Henry Sutton, Samuel Walkley, Frederick Freeman, George Tasker and John Lowry. When about 150 yards from the shore, on the return trip, the boat swamped, the heavy gale having made the water very rough. As Lowry could not swim, Sutton and Walkley went to his assistance, and succeeded in placing him on the bottom of the overturned boat. Freeman, in the meantime, being in difficulty, Tasker went to his assistance, as also did Walkley when he had placed Lowry in safety on the bottom of the boat. On Walkley arriving, Tasker, being exhausted, relinquished his hold on Freeman. Walkley, also being exhausted, let go of Freeman shortly afterwards, and the latter sank. He was then within five yards of the shore. Tasker and Walkley were very exhausted, and only with difficulty reached the bank, where willing hands pulled them from the water. Sutton and Lowry were taken from the bottom of the boat by the crew of the launch 'May', which happened to be passing. Messrs Albert and Henry Sutton began dragging operations as soon as Freeman sank, and at about 11 o'clock recovered the body. Efforts at resuscitation were made for an hour, when Drs Hatherley and Porritt, who had been summoned, pronounced life to be extinct. Freeman was 22 years of age, and was a son of Mr Walter Freeman, of the Aramoho Refreshment Rooms. Sincere sympathy will be felt for the sorrowing relatives. An inquest will be held at 9.30 this morning.
The deceased was a member of the Sixth Contingent in South Africa, and while there was promoted to be Sergeant-Major. Mr Freeman desires to thank those who assisted to recover the body of his son and also in attempting to resuscitate life
