Great to see the sacrifices of those that helped build the town and country not forgotten. Locals support this very well and a must for anyone visiting.

Interesting and fascinating memorial and display. So poignant to see all the names, DOB and cause of death of so many miners. So tragic but so fitting and moving a memorial. Great view over the township is a bonus.
