Saving Graves WA (Western Australia)

Part of the post that was initially here has been removed for legal reasons. - Grave Encounters
To contact Saving Graves WA, please email at Sandra Playle fedelmar@hotmail.com if you have further questions or require further. 
Last of all I would like to share a poem that has been provided by a former member of the Saving Graves WA team. The author unknown but poignant all the same; 
Your tombstone stands among the rest,  Neglected and alone. The name and the date are chiselled out, On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who cares, It is too late to mourn. You did not know that I exist, You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you, In flesh, in blood, in bone. Our blood contracts and beats a pulseEntirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled, One hundred years ago, Spreads out among,  the ones you left. Who would have loved you so?
I wonder if you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew That someday I would find this spot, And come to visit you.
