In June 2016 there were six new plaques placed in the Emu Bay Historic Cemetery, Kangaroo Island, by members of the Emu Bay Progress Association & K.I. Lions Club. I have attached photos of these new plaques and information about who they refer to. Any other names mentioned as regards to being at this cemetery are no longer applicable, ie, Ratcliffe & Whittle. Ratcliffe is actually Radford and the Whittles have, over the years, been re-interred with other family members at the Kingscote Cemetery.
