The memorial commemorates local pioneers of the Tomaga River area.

The cemetery was bulldozed by the developers of the housing estate known as Sunpatch in the early 1960s. The first recorded burial in the cemetery took place on 20 June 1878 when John Phillip Jennings aged 9 years was buried by Charles, Walter and William Jennings. The last burial was that of Richard Sebbens aged 51, in April 1914
