We visited this cemetery on our way back from a family wedding. Unsurprisingly there were many graves with a nautical theme which made for a particularly memorable visit.
Sometimes the inscription on a gravestone can feel almost unendurably poignant. How did the baby David Victor Hughes come to be born and die in Australia? Archives show that the bargue "Caroline Spooner" sailed to the USA and to Australia so presumably Captain Hughes took his pregnant wife on one of these trips rather than leaving her at home.
