A joint partnership between the Aboriginal community and Kempsey Shire Council has enabled dozens of unmarked graves to be acknowledged and remembered at the East Kempsey Cemetery. A special memorial plaque has been set in a large boulder at the cemetery and was unveiled on Tuesday, 19th December 2006.

The New South Wales Department of Environment and Conservation assisted with funding of the plaque. Wording on the plaque was put together by the Elders and support officers. This project marked a significant step forward in reconciliation in Kempsey and is seen as a fitting spiritual tribute to lost souls.
