I'm discontinuing the "Mortality Files". People are free to download the files and use them on another web site. For the moment, this web site will remain, but I will remove it later in the year. Archived copies may be available on the search engines such as Google, Bing etc.

Free Online Funeral Notices

 for

Australia Defence Force Community

 

I've previously approached DVA about providing an "Online Funeral Notice Site" for Australia's veterans. They have all the necessary information but have declined to provide this service.

 

I approached "heavenaddress" about this matter, in early 2011 . Their Managing Director, Derek Goh, telephoned me back. He's been very generous with his company's time and resources to effectively create a web site within a web site. There is still more development work to do but the basics are in place. There are no costs involved for members of "Australia Defence Force Community" which embodies both veterans and serving members.

 

It's there for people to use - use the hyperlinks immediately below this notice.

Most of the entries in "heavenaddress" relative to "Australia Defence Force Community" emanate from the "Mortality Files".

 

The format of the "heavenaddress" files and the "Mortality Files" are different and in converting the files across to the "heavenaddress" format some anomalies have arisen. As time and resources permit these will be addressed.

 

The main ones are:

  1. Duplication of some entries

  2. Error in "Place of Birth" where it is outside Australia

  3. Ranks are shown as the rank when in Vietnam, unless we receive more recent information from relatives or comrades.

Donations to Charities

This feature is not quite active yet but will be processed through:
Mycause - charity and fundraising events

My understanding is that people will be able to choose the charity to which they wish to donate. The charity will have to be registered with "Mycause".

As curator of "Australia Defence Force Community Online Memorial Community" I'd like to see some charities that help veterans and serving members in their fights against unjust treatment by successive Federal Governments. There may not be charities established for the causes listed below but I believe the community would support them:

  1. Fair Go Campaign

  2. TPI Equivalent for widows of ADF Personnel Killed in Action

Australia's Military Veterans - Online Funeral Notices

 

http://www.heavenaddress.com/community/Australias-Veterans/25/community.aspx

 

The www.heavenaddress.com  web site has uploaded our excel files into Australia Veterans Online Community of over 8,000 deceased Australian "Vietnam Veterans". This web site is supported by leading funeral industry businesses such as funeral directors, cemeteries, crematoria etc. and it is the largest online memorial website in Australia.

 

The uploaded files only relate to Australia's Vietnam Veterans. Veterans details from other conflicts can also be uploaded to www.heavenaddress.com  by sending the information in excel format to heavenaddress. Please provide these excel files to me in the first instance and I will pass them on to heavenaddress.

 

There is a capability within the heavenaddress website for the input of information independent of our files by clicking: http://heavenaddress.com/CreateaMemorial/tabid/178/Default.aspx.

All posting is free of charge and there is no further cost involved.

 

If you want to search their website for a particular veteran it helps considerably if you can provide the full name, however heavenaddress' search is able to find and return a result even if a search is on a partial name. For instance a search for "Robert Sykes" or "Sykes Robert" will find "Lcdr Robert John Sykes". Another way of searching is via Google, for example Google "Robert Sykes heavenaddress" will find an entry in the heavenaddress.

 

We would like to express our sincere thanks to heavenaddress for providing us with an online memorial platform.
