Bio

You can rest assured if I claim your photo request every effort will be made to find your loved ones exact resting place. For those who like to "pinch" the photo requests I have claimed...At least do them justice by taking decent pics. Photos of patches of grass or bare dirt are simply unacceptable.

Unfortunately due to the fact that Remembrance Parks Central Victoria is now charging $15 to provide map details for Unmarked graves, I will no longer be requesting burial maps for same. If a photo request in Bendigo, Eaglehawk, White Hills or Kangaroo Flat cemeteries is unmarked, only a general area photo of the section will be provided.For the sections at Bendigo where I already have the maps, I will continue to provide pics of the actual unmarked grave.

As a former serviceman (Army), whose brother, father and grandfather have all served their country in times of war I have a special interest in identifying and photographing veterans graves who otherwise may fall through the cracks of having no Veterans Affairs memorial grave or headstone. I have also had a number of direct and distant relatives serve in the German Military Forces during WW1 and WW2.

Following is a list of cemeteries in Victoria I have so far photographed in full. Every headstone in these cemeteries has been photographed, so up until Feb 2019, if you don't see a headstone you are seeking it probably does not exist. Of course anyone buried after Feb 2019 will not be included unless someone else has taken the time to record their memorial. Unfortunately, there is always a headstone that is badly worn, smashed or simply cannot be deciphered, as a result these are not included.
The photos I take are free for all to use. If we don't share this info, then others will be forgotten. But, please if you wish to use one of my photos for your own purpose, please ask. If it is for a Findagrave (FaG) memorial just simply put in a request.
