Cemetery Record

“When, in the years to come, the Tennant Creek goldfield is worked out, and the waste from which it sprung reverts to waste, the little cemetery facing the Overland Telegraph Line will tell the poignant tale of strife, adventure, disappointment and grief that attended its rise." - Written 1936
