Cemeteries, or burial grounds as they are often called, are a historical record of local communities. The memorials record important events or periods in the history of the Shire. Unlike most other histories, cemeteries document the lives of all: rich or poor, prominent or humble. The memorials also provide valuable information on local individuals and families. Cemeteries enable people to conduct genealogical research and historians to interpret the social and economic development of the area.
