WCS. 16 may 1914. One thing that forcibly strikes a visitor to the town of Ceduna is the unsatisfactory state of the local cemetery… even if the grounds were only fenced it would be a decided improvement.
WCS. 13 February 1926: Our Murat Bay Letter. Amongst the many improvements notable which the District Council have in hand, is the clearing and fencing of the Murat Bay cemetery, this has been neglected for so long. One would hardly think such a state of affairs possible. The writer had seen stray cattle wandering at liberty through this place of rest…
Advertiser. 20 August 1934. A further area at the Ceduna Cemetery is to be surveyed owing to all available blocks being now nearly used up.
This could be the funeral of two Airmen, killed in a plane accident at the Ceduna Airport, during WW11.
3 March 1954. Ceduna. The caretaker reports that vandalism is taking place at Ceduna cemetery. Among other things large boughs have been sawn off ornamental pine trees. As well as the desecration of Holy ground, the symmetry of the trees, which the caretaker is taking such pains to preserve, has been spoilt. It is difficult to believe that any local or district person would stoop to such practices and it is hoped that there will be no recurrence of the wanton destruction.
