Commonwealth War Graves: Restoration Of Australian Headstones

The unique ‘Scrolling Stones’ headstones conceptualised by Australian forces admitted as patients at No. 1 Australian Auxiliary Hospital at Harefield Park, Middlesex, England during the First World War are to be restored in time for Anzac Day in April. Harefield (St Mary) Churchyard is recognised as one of the primary places of remembrance for Australians in the UK. The work that is being undertaken at the site involves lead lettering being inserted into the marble scrolls and new engravings
