Update Dec 2005 from Chris Davey

Jhansi Cemetery has been completely cleared of all major trees and shrubs, and we are cleaning all grass and weeds. So the complete cemetery which is actually about 10 acres in size is now easily accessable. Since then the outer wall has been completely repaired with funds from BACSA

We have collected and computerised all the information available concerning everyone who is buried in the Jhansi cemetery, both by abstracting all the information in the Burial Registers which go back to 1867 as well as transcribing all the information displayed on the grave ie on the cross or on the burial stone. So we now have the complete information on all the cemetery. In addition to the general photos of the graveyard showing the cleared areas, we are in the process of preparing individual photos of each plot. Therefore it will be possible in the future (when we can find an appropriate organisation who can display all the available info) to do a search and fnd all the information concerning all the people buried in Jhansi Cemetery.

March 2004
The following was received from Ed Sentner who supplied many of the photos:

Many thanx to Sanjay, the manager of the restaurant at the Hotel Sita. It was he who took us to this cemetery, deep in the grounds of the present day Indian Armed Forces base in Jhansi. The site itself is very quiet and secluded, far away from any main roads, and deep in the heart of the base. We had to pass security checkposts, which Sanjay waived us through. The cemetery is in very bad shape, with weeds overgrowing most of the graves. We were told only Rs. 250 per month is alloted for its upkeep, and the cemetery covers, I would estimate, 3-5 acres. It seems that only the front entrance is being maintained.
