‘Lost At Sea’ – Greenpoint Cemetery, Bluff

24 May

I was at the cemetery so I took pictures of all the plaques.  It does not do justice to the lives lost in and around Bluff and the Foveaux Strait.  So many families choose to honour their family members in family plots that they are not adding to the ‘Lost At Sea’ memorial.  If we, as a community, want to record those losses in one place we can’t rely on the families to create a plaque at an additional cost.  I think nearly every person that sees these photos will be able to name at least one person who has been lost at sea and is not recorded here.
