Death from Syncope. – Yesterday afternoon the coroner conducted an inquest at Drake’s Hotel, Axedale, on the body of a married woman named Jane Pascoe, who resided at Tooleen, and who died suddenly on Friday. Henry Pascoe, the husband of the deceased, deposed that his wife was 46 years of age. She was of stout build, but enjoyed good health, although she sometimes complained of pains in the region of the heart. On Thursday night she complained of pains in her left side, and on Friday morning, being no better, witness applied mustard plasters, but at about nine o’clock, or very shortly afterwards, she suddenly expired. Amelia Jane Pascoe, daughter of the deceased, stated that on Thursday and Friday, her mother was unable to leave her bed. At about nine’o’clock she was attending to her, when suddenly she turned up her eyes and expired. Dr. Hinchcliff, who made a post mortem examination of the body, testified to the cause of death as syncope from fatty degeneration of the heart. A verdict accordingly was returned.

Axedale Cemetary

The Axedale Cemetery is situated on 9 acres, on the corner of McIvor Highway and Cemetery Road in a bush setting, surrounded by gum trees. The first unconfirmed burial was George Bywaters in 1865.

The Axedale Cemetery, unusually, is actually, two separate cemeteries side by side. There is the Protestant or public cemetery and alongside it the Roman Catholic Cemetery. This is a private cemetery administered by the Catholic Church of Bendigo. The Catholic cemetery is surrounded by an eye catching bluestone wall.
