I am in receipt of your email regarding a grave at Newington cemetery. Unfortunately, the majority of Newington's records are not kept in index form, so we would need names and exact dates of death for whoever you think might be interred in the grave. I was able to find an interment around the date of purchase, detailed below. From 1931-1991(when we compulsory purchased the cemetery), all we have is an index of those interred, with no indication of where their interments are, so we would be unable to verify that someone was interred in the grave of interest to you between these years.
Newington cemetery, grave space K1-250
Marion McInnes, date of death 25/8/1916, interred 27/8/1916, no age recorded
I have attached a map of the cemetery with a row marked by two red crosses. The above grave is within this row but as I can't see a record of a headstone with readable inscription, here are names on headstones either side of it:
K1-246 S Boyd
K1-254 Daniel Houston
I trust this information is of assistance.
