About

Mauritius BM Project
The Bois Marchand Cemetery was established in 1867, due to the malaria epidemic. The land was donated by the Marchand family. The Archive consists of Burial Registers (BR) and Graves Purchased Books (GPB), in the form of bound printed forms. They were written in English and on a daily basis from 1867/68 on. Due to poor preservation, some registers were not preserved or only in a fragmentary condition. Custodial history: The Archive had always been held in a cupboard at the Cemetery office, on the site, indirectly exposed to weather conditions and insects and rodents. Administrative context: The forms/books were filled by the cemetery directors, on the site. Extent and format of original material: This collection contains 2 series.
