Western Australian Cemeteries

For almost 30 years the Metropolitan Cemeteries Board of Western Australia has been clearing headstones from Karrakatta Cemetery and will soon commence this practice in the Fremantle Cemetery. Headstones have already been removed from many graves, including soldiers, founding pioneers and people who have contributed historically to the state of Western Australia. Valuable historic information and artefacts have been sent off and crushed for road base. The Metropolitan Cemeteries Board has other options available without removing headstones from graves but they refuse to consider these options.
Sandra Playle of Pinjarra, has created a petition, which will be sent to the members of the Legislative Assembly of the Government of Western Australia. You can add your name to this petition or get further information at
