Death, burial & memorialisation

This page focuses on death, burial and memorialisation. In many cases, there is considerably more information in the EJBA e.g about his childhood, military career, medals, discharge, and family and later life, but this is not being posted online at the moment. If you can contribute photographs (for example showing the current state of a grave or memorial) or additional information, or have a particular interest, please contact the editors.

Birth & early life

Born in Shajupre [PB: modern Shajapur, in west-central India?], India, on the 6th of February 1832, the son of Troop Sergeant Major John Bambrick of the 11th Light Dragoons and his wife, Harriet Ann.

Death & burial

Died at Bourke in New South Wales, Australia, on the 17th of October 1893, aged 65 years. (His date of birth would have made him only 61.) The cause of death was "Asthma (2 years)".

Much of the information usually found on Australian death certificates is not shown. (There is a copy in the "Certificates" file.)

He was buried in Grave No. 91. Church of England Section, in Bourke Cemetery, New South Wales. No plan of this cemetery is now in existence and no memorial stone was erected.
