ROTTNEST ISLAND CEMETERY
 
Western Australia
 
 
In the summer of 2007 I visited Perth, Western Australia, with my wife and two sons, as part of a three week holiday. During the trip we spent two days on Rottnest Island, just an hour or so away from Freemantle, and whilst there I came across the most amazing wee cemetery, which was just begging to be photographed!
 

Thirteen people are believed to have been buried in the cemetery, though the names of only seven are known:
 

 
Luke ANKERMAN   Drowned 19th Dec 1883   Age unknown
 
Henry PHILLIPS  7th B. Rifle Brigade   Died 1st Nov 1862   Age 46 years
 
Emily SHEA   Died 1869   Age 9 years
 
Queenie GURNEY   Died 3rd Nov 1893   Age 6 years 4 months
 
Florence Mary STORRS   Died 10th May 1898   Age 10 1/2 weeks
 
Patrick William O' DONOGHUE   Died 13th Jan 1899   Age 10 weeks
 
Henry HALL (Father a warder)   Died Unknown   Age 26 days
