墓地“华族区”拟改名为“公共区”

各位,Kialla West Cemetery Trust 墓地管理信托会来函(见此信件/The letter),通知本华人社区说,他们计划向卫生部申请拨款,拟把该墓地的几个分区重新命名。

将被重新命名的其中一个分区目前为“华族区”。现时是空置着的,从1800年代该墓地开用后就没有被使用过。

“华族区”与另外两个现时亦是空置着的区将合并,合并后将名为“公众区”。

昨日,我(会长)代表大家去过作实地调查,确认“华族区”没有任何墓碑啊等等有华族先人安息于此的迹象。

兹撰文知会各位华族社区成员、街坊好友。如有任何意见可反映至本会。我们会如实反映至KWCT管理信托会。

信托会等我们做了回应之后就会递交拨款申请了。大家有意见的话请尽快联系我(0428 544 226) 或秘书长Graham (0409 937 476) 。谢谢。

Proposed realignment/renaming of Kialla West Cemetery Chinese interment section

We have just been informed by the Kialla West Cenmetery Trust, c/o Trust Secretary Belinda Collins, of a proposal to rename the Chinese interment section, along with others in the Cenmetery.

You can read the letter here.

In part, it says:

“The Kialla West Cemetery Trust has no record of any interments (burials) within the current ‘Chinese’ interment section and would like to make application to the Department of Huealth and Human Services for approval to rename this section to Public.”

The Trust is seeking feedback from the Chinese community. We invite you to forward any feedback to our Secretary Graham (0409 937 476) or myself (0428 544 226), ASAP. Thank you.
