White Cliffs Pioneer and General Cemetery
From the few known records of the period 1892 - 99 over 500 children and innumerable adults lie in unmarked graves.
The ravages of Typhoid, Diptheria and Dysentry decimated the children of this mining community.
To the memory of our pioneer men, women and children whatever their origins and beliefs and to those who came later, who lie here in graves known and unknown this plaque is dedicated.
