Inscription in Proximity
(Columbarium)
SAWTELL MEMORIAL PARK 
We Mourn Them Here -
Our Dreaming Dead.
In This Quiet Hallowed Place
To Heroes Dedicate.

As Once They Loved All This-
Warm Sands - Sea Breeze,
Tall Trees And Distant Hills, 
The Magpies Glory In The Early Morn - 
We Chose This Spot.

We Took Our Memories And Placed Them Here,
And Planted Trees , Like Memories Evergreen
To Thrive And Grow
More Cherished With The Years.
Speak Quietly Here - Tread Soft. 
The Men Who Loved These Sands Dream On.
The Blessed Peace For Which They Fought Is Theirs
In This Tree - Ringed, Green Lovely Spot.
