Bio

Hopefully the work I am doing here is contributing to helping those who are looking for lost family.

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. 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 memorial just simply put in a request.
