We only had funding for twenty posts. 

  • There is an online search facility for the Cemetery giving names and dates: (https://www.mountbarker.sa.gov.au/discover/cemeteries/cemetery-search?action=cemetery&id=159). This has enabled us to find some of the earliest burials and to see which family names recur.
  • We also prioritised unusual, accidental and untimely deaths, which might spark the curiousity of visitors.
  • Beyond this the process of selection was largely random, although we were keen to equally represent male and female subjects.
  • We did not research everyone in the cemetery in advance to see who had the best stories.
