Cemeteries of Balranald

I like to visit cemeteries. They are usually peaceful, contemplative and offer insight into the people of a town over time. Individuals, families, different cultures have different ways of dealing with grief and respecting their loved ones. Cemeteries offer a glimpse of that.   Sometimes an elaborate grave, sometimes a chair by a headstone, a statue or objects by the grave. I met an individual who made markers and tributes for relatives and individuals of his community whose graves were unmarked. It was humbling to see his work.
