Deaths at the Toowoomba Hospital

From lists published in the Darling Downs Gazette, 1900.

compiled by Terry Foenander.




This list of names, extracted from monthly reports of the Toowoomba (Queensland, Australia) Hospital published in the Darling Downs Gazette, include only the names of the deceased, their ages, date of admission, and date of death. Unfortunately no other information was published, but any additional data located for each person will be included in future updates.

It should be noted that the deaths listed here for the city of Toowoomba, in 1900, were only those that occurred at the Toowoomba Hospital, and not the total number of deaths in that city. Lists for subsequent years will be uploaded at a later stage.
