      I’m not sure if there is anywhere online. The only photos I have I have included above. (It was a quick visit on the way home.)

      I did go and have a look through the photo on my hard drive to see if I might have miss some but found no Alexander headstones. Sorry.

      (I’d be happy to go and take some, but as it’s on the west coast, it’d cost you a few hundred dollars so probably not worth it 🙂

        Thank you very much for replying and for the offer. I’m hoping to come to Tassie in the near future so I’ll keep hunting till then.
        Kind regards,

    Hi could you please tell me where the cemetery is. Currently visiting the area.
    Is there just one for Waratah area? Would there be one for the old magnet village?

      I’m not sure. There are two. The old one (shown here) before you get into Waratah. I think it’s on Old Cemetery Rd (which is here). There’s a second newer one in the town that I haven’t been to, but I think it’s near the edge of the town on the road that goes onto the west coast.
