I am seeking information about an English-born (though don’t know exactly where) woman, Emma Wardlaw Best, who purchased an island (Moyenne) in the Seychelles ca.1899 and died there ca.1913. She made her island a refuge for unwanted dogs. She was buried I think on Mahe.

Does anyone know of her or have access to Seychelles cemetery records/transcripts or could advise me on whether it is even possible to get such information from afar?

I am especially keen to establish her birth and death dates and am not having much success. Any help or advice would be very gratefully received.
