CAMPBELL, WILLIAM

William Moody Campbell was a jockey who was badly injured at the Oamaru Racecourse and died at the Globe Hotel in Oamaru on 8 April 1895. His body was taken to Dunedin's Northern Cemetery. His headstone is decorated with a jockey's cap and whip and the inscription "Gone but not Forgotten".

The circumstances of the accident and death were fully reported in the "Oamaru Mail" of 10 April 1895.

His half-brother (Charles Campbell, photographer of Campbell Photography) and sister came to NZ with their mother on the 'Sevilla' in 1892. Their father, a sea captain had died of yellow fever in Batavia some years before.
