For those of you who don't know, Camp Bay is near Purau Bay in Lyttelton Harbour and was used as a quarantine camp for ships for many years. I have currently been hunting for the cemetery records. My first port of call was the Christchurch City Libraries, but they don't have them. They put me onto the Christchurch City Council but they didn't have them. CCC put me on to the Department of Conservation as they run the reserve which contains the cemetery at Camp Bay but they don't seem to have them. They may have had them but none of the staff there can remember if they do. If they did have them then a Chch historian can't remember ever seeing them. I then finally found a record of a microfisch held by the NZ Society of Genealogists and have yet to go and check that out. It is held in a library not far from me, but I have to make a special trip to view it.
Anyway, I have started a list of people who were possibly buried at this cemetery, from other records I have found in Archives New Zealand and Paperspast, for example. If anyone else has found a record such as this and wishes to add their ancestors to the list, please let me know. Hopefully, with some help we can build up a reasonable list. One day I will compare it to the NZSG microfische!
