This magnificent compilation is the culmination of some twenty years of research and lists all details of lonely graves of Western Australia collected since the 1986 publication Lonely Graves of Western Australia and Burials at Sea.
An absolutely essential handbook for all outback historians and genealogists. Cross indexed. It does not replace Lonely Graves of Western Australia and Burials at Sea nor W.A. Burial Locality Index.
The alpha listing is 426 pages with appendices on unidentified lonely graves (26pp), supplement records (12pp), medical terms (8pp), surname cross indices (30pp), ship index (2pp) and place name index of 19 pages.
The authors are fifth generation Australians from a farming background at Margaret River. They grew up experiencing the end of an old era - pre-refrigeration, electricity and scheme water. Their interest in Western Australian history was kindled from the pioneer life of their grandparents in the south west.
