In cemeteries throughout Australia, gravestones hint at our history - tales of early settlement, unsolved murders, love lost, mystery, tragedy, health epidemics, scandal and sacrifice. Grave Tales reveals more than the headstone can ever convey by tracing the tumultuous journeys that lead to these final resting places.
Grave Tales Brisbane Vol. 1 visits five Brisbane cemeteries and tells of the everyday people who may have lived in the same suburbs, streets, and even the same houses as exist now, or finished their days in Brisbane. Willingly or unwilling, they were participants in events that made local and national headlines.
