Memories of Dublin Cemetery

On visiting old family graves in the cemetery recently it was a comfort to find the area cared for and tidy. The new Dublin Cemetery entrance sign adds a welcome to the area. Many years ago the District Council of Mallala gardener and interested persons planted native trees and shrubs around the perimeter of the cemetery and these are now well grown and make the area attractive.
