As I was born in Warragul I have a few ancestors that are buried in the cemetery there. My next project is going to be to update the family tree. I started to research this when I was in my early twenties but have done nothing since so there is a bit to sift through.
I was able to get photos of all the rellies headstones and plaques. I also found the plaques of a few friends and friends parents who have passed away.
Before I went to the cemetery I visited a local store and brought some flowers that I was able to place on some of the graves.
Such is the growth of the town and the limitations of the cemetery being “in town”, a new larger lawn cemetery has been established on the south west edge of town. This is quite a pretty area on a hill overlooking the town.

I also do my family tree but have put it aside for now. It can be overwhelming and expensive. But it is so rewarding too. I also had my DNA done which was very interesting. My husband thinks its morbid visiting cemeteries but I feel it remembers and respects those who have gone before us.
So pleased you took those photos. They will be important later on.
