I believe my great grandfather, named Osborne, was either accountant or manager of the Northcote Brickworks somewhere between 1890 - 1915. Can you provide any info please ?

Peter, we don't keep employment records for companies but the Darebin Historical Encyclopedia has an article about the Brickworks. It's possible that they might be able to help you with finding the employment records for the company.

My mother Great Uncle Thomas Weatherall was the manager of the Brickworks, and was buried at the rear of the factory along with others. I am trying to find out what happened to the graves as it is now the Nortcote shopping plaza
