The above three graves are grouped in a single enclosure. 70 metres away to
the north east is the following stone.
Nearby, outside the fenced off area, are three bases (only one shown) and a capstone are laying on the ground indicating the possibility of existence of other graves
Travel on towards Edi Upper but turn east into Pettifers Rd after passing the tennis courts. Three to four kilometres further on (about 2 km before reaching the Carboor Upper Rd) and a little before you reach the forested area and on the right hand side about 100 metres into the paddock in a North Easterly direction, there is a lone grave consisting of a rough stone with plaque attached beside a wooden cross. The location of the nearest point on the road is: 59 39470 Northing, 554 54800 Easting, or latitude/longitude of 146.499 East and 36.689 South.
The plaque reads
