Headstone on grave commemorates writer Arthur Hoey Davis who wrote under the name Steele Rudd. He was known for his "On Our Selection" stories.

Davis wrote twenty-four books and six plays and saw three silent and four sound-film adaptations of his work. His early books were his best, providing a wry, sympathetic account of the demanding life of the selector and offering a rounded portrait of Dad Rudd.
