The headstone erected over the grave commemorates Elizabeth and Henry McCrae, who died in the 1930s. They were believed to be the ‘last full-blooded Aborigines' in the Warrnambool district.

A headstone provided by public subscription, and bearing a suitable inscription, has been erected in the Warrnambool Cemetery over the graves of Elizabeth and Henry McCrae, the last two full blooded aborigines of the district.
