Burketown (Qld) Hospital Admission Register

Hospital admission registers are very useful for genealogy and family history. The only surviving register for Burketown Hospital (at Qld State Archives) covers 16 Dec 1909 to 29 Dec 1923. Though not always completed in full, it has space for these details:

name;  date admitted;  age;  birthplace;  occupation;  religion;  ship of arrival;  how long in colony;  place of residencemarital status;  place of marriage, at what age, and name of spouse;  names and ages of children living;  number and sex of children deceasedfather's name and occupationfather's present residence if living (or 'father dead');  mother's maiden name;  disease or reason for admission;  date of discharge or date and cause of death;  additional remarks (medical history, social circumstances etc.)

Note the provision for ship of arrival, place of residence, marital status, and father's present residence - details not found on a Qld death certificate. A hospital register is sometimes the only surviving source of information about immigration.

Explanation of names below:

  • Date range:  16 Dec 1909 - 29 Dec 1923.
  • An asterisk (*) means I have a small amount of information from the register.
  • Scroll through the list. Many names were spelled incorrectly in the registers.
  • '-' or '...' means that no surname was stated, or the name was illegible.
  • A question mark means handwriting was difficult to decipher, and spelling is in doubt.
  • 'Ab' = Aboriginal or part Aboriginal.
  • Names beginning with 'Mc' precede other 'M' surnames.
  • Apostrophes have been removed from names such as O'SHANAUGHSEY.
  • If there is more than one entry for a name, it could mean that the same person is mentioned more than once, or that there were several people with the same name. The only way to find out is to consult the original source. Check all such entries, as some may give more details than others.

Obtaining more information

Copying service. Allow several weeks for a reply (I am often away for family reasons).

For many years this Web page included the warning "There is a risk that the Government may close hospital records. Use them now!"  As I predicted, Qld Health has closed this register until 2024, so I can no longer provide full transcriptions - but for 40% of the entries (the ones marked with an asterisk) I made brief notes during indexing (usually one or more of the following:  birthplace, age, occupation, residence, ship of arrival, how long in Qld, reason for admission, spouse, parents, father's occupation and/or present residence).

As a professional genealogist, I will (for a fee) supply page references so that you can apply for more details via Right to Information, and (for names marked with an asterisk) brief notes I made while indexing.

* If you live in Australia: the fee is $6 for one entry, and extra entries $3 each.

* If you live overseas: the fee is AUD$7 for one entry, and extra entries $3 each.
