Unofficial War Grave Project

Within Rookwood Cemetery, there are over 1,800 unofficial war graves that memorialise men and women who were involved in World War I.

In 2015, staff volunteers from Rookwood General Cemetery began identifying and documenting marked and unmarked war graves of ANZACs located throughout Rookwood Cemetery. Each year, a handful of individuals with unmarked graves are selected to receive monumental conservation work on their final resting places in Rookwood.
