When her mother died, she was buried at St Andrews Cemetery in Newcastle. How do we know? well believe me it is not from finding her headstone!
It was removed, unknown to the family nor anyone else in 1954. My reward for complaining to the Anglican Church was a coy of the Sexton's Notes for how to bury her.
The cemetery where she was buried was known as St Andrews. In the late 1950’s the NSW Government introduced an Act to allow the cemetery to be used for other purposes. There is an apartment block on the site. Investigations are ongoing to find out where the graves have been relocated. The head stones were used as road fill.
Some Internet Research regarding all the missing headstone and remains of family
I have noticed there is no mention of it on HVG and after Googling it I can only find reference to North Waratah but no significant information
Is there a cemetery at Waratah and if so where is it and would there be a register (there names don't come up on "newcastle.nsw.gov.au/library/cemetery_search.cfm")
Would very much like some help with this so if you can help thankyou in advance……………..
Well, it pays to listen to one's elders after all, instead of being a "know it all" like myself! My guess is that the cemetery records would still be there in the church, they had a Roll of Honour on the wall from at least the Great War. Back in those days too, Mayfield was the more "upper" of the two suburbs, Mayfield and Waratah. Another option would be St Phillips Anglican Church, which I think is on Turton St? Waratah. Don't have my street directory on me……...
I have been told that Council broke the stones up and used them to build a drain at the side of a walkway at Blackbutt. I'll be there next week to take photos, perhaps some still have writing on them. This project was organised by the Mayor, Frank Purdue. It was approved by the Governor, E W Woodward. Some of the cemetery was sold to the department of housing for units and a church hall was built on top of other graves. Perhaps there are more under the carpark?
I also have two photocopied pages from a publication by Newcastle Historical Society in 2001, now out of print but available on CD. It seems to have been put together using the original burial records, my gg grandparents are on it! The second page is transcriptions of funeral notices from the Newcastle Morning Herald, also part of this publication. For all this I have to thank some kind parishoners of St Andrews.
Hope this information is of use to some of you.

Dale always told a story to his family about some cousins of his, who were found murdered in NSW. They don’t appear to be Eileens children, but perhaps either her grandchildren, or children from Eric Judd’s large family. However, whilst having the same name they are not related.
Reginald Judd's family came from Oxfordshire in UK, the two who were murdered came from a different area, and their ancestor came as a convict.
Another Jillett Family member also has Judd relations, again, none are related.
There were a great many Judd Family in Australia in the turn of the century.
Reginald's family were from Victoria.
