    Rose Ball Henninges is buried at Burwood Cemetery (near Melbourne, Victoria, Australia).

    The Grave reference is: METH Section 8 Grave 102, which is the same grave as her husband's.

    As those who have a picture of her husband's headstone, Rose's name does not appear on it. Hence her name is not listed on the transcription of headstones available at libraries and historical societies.

    If you want to visit the grave, it on the left hand side looking south from Burwood Highway, just beyond the first roundabout.

    I have temporarily provided a picture of the grave at:

    Now for my next question: who can provide photos of Ernest and Rose Henninges?

    Well done. I find it funny how the Witnesses make a big deal about how Mrs Russell never produced Rose as a witness in the court case. It doesnt explain she was living in Australia at the time!

    I have temporarily provided the printouts from the Burwood cemetery at:

    These show that Rose and Ernest share the same grave location. The headstone does not reveal this, although there might be room to provide that information. Or I presume a plaque could have been added.

    The headstone is in a poor state and I do not expect it will last. I will contact the "Henninges" people here but am not too hopeful of a positive outcome.

    I have removed the earlier pictures re the Henninges' grave.

    In their place, I have provided a PDF file that includes other photos that I took of the cemetery. I might remove this file at some time.
