Just went down and it was a wet but beautiful Fall day, so I took photos of the color as well as the sites. I had to make the photo size a smaller resolution for this site, so if you want a larger resolution I can send it email.

Margaret Macaulay
Hi Ian,

You can find a photo of the Margaret at the following link:

It's the Australian Cemeteries Index. I typed in Home Hill Cemetery and scrolled through the names to see if there was a photo before I claimed it as I live in Townsville which is about 150 klm away.

I just found you wanted some photos, Ian. I will get down to the cemetery and take one as soon as I can. I have been putting our little cemetery records online and saw you had already put one up for Annie and John, so I submitted edits as to plot and interment dates.

That would be Arthur Chrysler married to Margaret Macaulay. Goofing off is a good thing, but I tend to lose may place, or my paper, or...

Richard McAulay (Memorial# 115830138)
Just a heads-up, it looks like there will be a headstone for him. I'll update the picture when it gets put up.

RE: thank you
My pleasure. I just checked the searchable BMD index for the local newspaper, and saw an death notice was in the Expositor for a Henry Arthur, Aug 26, 1968. No other entries seem to pertain. If you think this is Arthur, let me know and I'll pop down to the library and check out the microfilm. I can save a .jpg for you of the notice.

RE: of Course I mind transferring
Its OK if you don't transfer. It is more important to me that the parents are linked. And I do appreciate the amount of work that goes into collecting and uploading all the information you do. And I thank you!

Field of Mars Cemetery
The Field of Mars Cemetery was proclaimed on 3 December 1887. The name “Field of Mars” was given by Governor Phillip when he granted land to eight first fleet marines in 1792. There are several theories as to the origin of the name - all with military connections. The areas where these grants were are now known as Ermington and Melrose Park. However, the name was later applied to a wider district and in 1804 Governor King set aside 5050 acres as a Field of Mars Common for all the settlers. It was later found to be more than 6000 acres. When the Field of Mars Common was subdivided and privatised, 85 acres 2 roods and 28 perches were set aside as a cemetery. More than half that area was later converted into the Field of Mars Flora and Fauna Reserve. The Macquarie Park Cemetery was also originally part of the Field of Mars Common.
