Life and death on the edge of the swamp: a walk in Bunyip Cemetery
Thirty-two stories of life and death on the swamp. There is an eclectic mix of stories about well-known identities who appear in published histories and are fortunate to have headstones marking their final resting place and stories of people long forgotten, whose only trace is an entry in the register.
Cranbourne Cemetery Tour 2012
They answered the call: a World War 1 Walk in Cranbourne Cemetery
Harkaway Cemetery Tour 2016: Ordinary people, interesting lives
Our stories of Harkaway Cemetery abound with people who, once arrived, had to create a roof over their heads, people who needed to grow crops or nurture their livestock to be able to eat, neighbours who no longer remained strangers, faces who became familiar at church or school or the general store or railway station.
Our volunteers researched and wrote the stories of families that travelled thousands of miles to a country on the other side of the world. A country with people who didn’t necessarily speak the same language or held the same beliefs
For some the bell tolled: a World War 1 Walk in Harkaway Cemetery (plus Harkaway Avenue of Honour)
Lang Lang Cemetery Tour 2013
Peace at last: a World War 1 Walk in Lang Lang Cemetery
We uncover the stories of 98 soldiers from the Lang Lang district and the 48 families who waved goodbye to them and prayed for their safe return. Just over half of these families sent two sons or more. Not everyone’s prayers were answered in the way they’d hoped for, prayers for the return of 24 fathers, sons, husbands and brothers were not answered at all.

Pakenham Cemetery Tour 2015: Indomitable women

Sacrifice and Patriotism: a World War 1 Walk in Pakenham Cemetery
Stories of 64 families who watched and supported 120 men and one woman as they enlisted.
This book tells the stories of sets of brothers, a father and his son, a nurse and a sailor along with two Indigenous soldiers. Soldiers who received awards, soldiers who served as troopers, gunners, sappers, drivers, and signallers; in the Light Horse, Pioneers, Railway Unit, Anzac Police and Provost Corps and in the Cyclist Battalion.
Those who returned had many and varied experiences during their service and upon their return, 16 took up soldier settlement blocks and 11 would re-enlist in the Second World War. They are all remembered forever as ANZACs men of the 1st Australian Imperial Force.
