  1. Hi Jim. I have started a new blog which is about cemetery renewal at Karrakatta cemetery in Perth WA. It is supplementary to a Facebook group called Saving Family Headstones at Karrakatta. Would it be OK with you if I reblogged this post to our blog ? Reblogging does not change the author or the link, it is a Link back to this blog. I want to make a post about how worthwhile it can be to visit cemeteries and come across old gravestones and remember the people buried there. Karrakatta seems keen to produce a delightful park uncluttered by Headstones.
