Dear Robert
Responding to your query re the old military cemetery. It was known as the British Garrison Cemetery but most of the burials there are of non military persons. I have a listing of the burials there -163 graves and about 500 burials some uncommemorated.My list seems incomplete as I do not have a Blackett on the list and the closest to that name is James Blacklaw, Francis Blacklaw, and Arthur Scott Blacklaw all interrred there. It is also possible that the compiler of the list may have mispelt the name? However if I do come across any more info I will certainly get back to you.
Regards
Hugh
