Let us be clear about one thing.
The copyright of our photos of headstones and war memorials
belongs to us (David Horton and Kerry Raymond).
However, we give permission for people to download individual
photos relating to their personal research to use for non-profit
(which includes displaying it on your personal WWW site or in a book
might write about your family history). If you republish any of our
(e.g. on a WWW site or in a book),
we would appreciate an acknowledgment that the photo came from our WWW
Copying large collections of our photos
(i.e. more than just what you need for your personal research)
or using our photos for profit-making purposes is not permitted,
but please contact us to discuss the matter further.

Are they complete?
We try to photograph all the memorials at a site, however if they are
locked away out of sight, then we don't photograph them. If the
headstone is face down on the ground, we don't move it. If it is hard
to read, we don't apply any chemicals to make it more readable for fear
of causing damage. However if you are
aware of any such omissions, please contact
us, and we will correct the completeness statement until we can
Why are there no photos?
The "photos" page will include thumbnails of all the
photos, so may be slow to load where there are a lot of photos. If the
link seems slow, you may prefer to load just an index. The "cemetery"
order is smaller than the "alphabetical" order.
The number of photos is given in
How do I see
the photo in full detail?
We have the photos in three different resolutions.
Thumbnails in the film strip on the left are probably too small
to read, however if
you click a thumbnail, you will see
normal "fit in window" size which will fill most of your web
Often this is enough to see if it is the one you are after, and then if
you click this image, you will see
full sized photo in the full resolution that we took the photo
at. These images are a few
hundred kB and so will take a while to load.
How do I download a photo?
First, check above
to see if it is OK with us to copy the photo.
Technically, downloading a photo is basically a matter of viewing the
at the desired size (we would suggest the largest image size, see above).
Then use the command in your WWW browser to download the image.
E.g. if you are using Internet Explorer, you right-click on the
image in the desired size, then select the "Save Picture As" option.
(In Mozilla or Firefox, the "Save Image as" option).
What is Cemetery order?
We try to photograph the cemeteries in a systematic way. Usually we
take a photo of entrance or church and the cemetery as a whole. Where
there are rows (or clusters), we take a shot of the row, then the
memorials in that row as we walk along.
The cemetery index order is the same as the photo order. Hopefully this
will identify families who are buried alongside one another.
What is your alphabetical order?
Each entry is indexed multiple times using all the names found on the
headstone. So, the surnames and given names are all there in
order (plus other random words, because it is machine indexed from the
photo captions). If you take a look at the smallest of our cemeteries,

Why is it so slow when I have broadband, you ask? Well we are not a
commercial site, and our uplink speed is not very fast. So our server
can't push out the bits onto the internet as fast as you can receive it.
Can we get the photos on CD?
We will make a CD of any of our listed cemeteries for which we have
copyright for AU$20 per cemetery. This price includes shipping within
Australia. The fair
will apply to the CDs too. For orders, international delivery or if you
have any questions, contact
That is my relative, what if
someone wants to contact me?
If a photo is of one of your relatives, and you would like to include
some contact details for other researchers who come across it to be
able to get in touch with you, then we can add those to the
inscription. Please email
the cemetery name
the photo(s) numbers. This is in the index page for a cemetery,
and may also appear in the URL depending on your browser.

that email address harvesters may visit our site). Keep it short
because index all the text; Perhaps you have a web page for the person
or family to link to, or some story that we can put in a separate page.

GoogleEarth is a service providing a satellite view of a location.
Cemeteries show up quite characteristically. Once you see the location,
zoom out to see surrounding township etc. To view
requires the GoogleEarth application to be downloaded from http://earth.google.com/. The
'GoogleEarth.kmz' file is a zip format file containing the lattitude,
longitude and name
