The sign at the cemetery entrance

visited Cossack, Western Australia, recently and took the opportunity to photograph the graves in the cemetery there.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get to the Japanese section of the cemetery, so the photos are only of the European section.  I did take at least one photo of every grave I could see.

I have larger versions of these photographs, some of them giving wider location context.  If you would like a copy of one of these, please comment and let me know.

I took a lot of photos, so I’ll be posting them a few at a time as a series.

You can see the other posts in this series by selecting the ‘Cemeteries’ category on the right.

In Loving Memory of James Stewart who died at Roebourne 27th September 1893, aged 51 years.

Oh now at rest are they whose toils are ended, who through death have unto God ascended.

James Stewart appears not to have been born in Western Australia.  There are several James Stewarts who married in Western Australia who could be him.  His parents are listed as unknown on the death register.
