Front Inscription

This plaque was placed by the "Central Darling Shire Council"
To honour the indigenous people, the pioneers and families
Whose headstones mark their final resting place
And those who rest in these grounds in unmarked graves.
To recognise their role in the building
Of our community in these often harsh regions.
Their committment to the betterment of all.
The thanksgiving they celebrated.
The hardships, sadness and loss often suffered.
The smile they always found.
