The digital images were taken by Ray Cork during August 2008. His images may be downloaded from the list of all inscriptions for this cemetery. Ray also compiled the inscription list with reference to the NSW BDM online search facility and the Australian War Memorial Nominal Rolls for both WW1 and WW2 for additional information.
