OVER 300 unnamed gravesites in the
Barmera cemetery will be addressed
as part of a Berri Barmera Council
The community-funded project will
see a plaque placed on existing white
crosses of unidentified gravesites
showing the deceased’s name and date
Property officer at Berri Barmera
Council, Dorothy Freer, said mem-
bers of the community regularly
enquire about the unmarked graves
when looking for deceased family or
“I often deal with people looking
for a relative and there’s no memorial
on the grave,” she said.
“When people are looking for
deceased loved ones we help them
as much as we can with maps. When
someone passes away in the new
section of the cemetery, even if they
don’t have a headstone, they have a
plaque recognising them but the old
section doesn’t have that.
“Obviously it’s expensive to put a
headstone and this is a way to identify
Mrs Freer said community support
was essential in ensuring the graves
are properly identified.
“The council maintains the ceme-
tery and it’s not a profit-making exer-
cise, so the idea is to raise the funds
from the community,” she said.
“Our idea is to work on Barmera
because we have some community
members keen to help fundraise and
it’s not taking the general revenue
Mrs Freer said correctly iden-
tifying each gravesite would be the
most difficult aspect of the exercise.
“Some of the graves might have more
than one person buried together and
they may not necessarily be from the
same family,” she said.
“It sounds simple until you have
to go out and identify the graves.
We’re thinking it could take a
few months before we finish.”
Mrs Freer said identifying the
deceased was just one of the project’s
“These additions are also a love-
ly way of tidying up that area of the
cemetery as well,” she said.
“My thoughts are once we do
Barmera I’d love to do Berri.
“Berri doesn’t have any crosses
yet but we are in the process and the
Barmera Community Men’s Shed will
help us make more crosses.
“The cemetery is one of my pas-
sions and we’re excited about iden-
tifying people. We haven’t forgotten
