で、訪れたのですが、駅から歩いても行ける距離にあります。 しかしながらかなり敷地は広く、目的地まで歩く必要があるでしょう。 more »And, it is within walking distance from the station though it visited. However, the site is quite large and you will need to walk to your destination.
シドニーのセントラルから快速電車がリッドコム(Lidcombe)駅に到着する直前に見えてくる大きな墓地です。 墓地の敷地中央には教会が有って道が整備されていますが一番古い一角は墓石も無く広場のようになっていました。 ごろごろ転がっている誰も花を手向けなさそうな古い墓石は何とも言えず荒れた墓地の様を呈しています。 more »It is a large graveyard comes into view before the train arrives at the lid com (Lidcombe) station from Sydney Central. The Church in the center of the cemetery grounds, roads have been built without tombstones is the oldest part, square had become. Everyone has rolled a copy to her flowers is unlikely old gravestones prefer the rough cemetery of galleries.
Just a pathetic website. Wanted to see where to find the Mausoleum for the funeral I'm attending today. No way to enter that in a search box, and the list of funerals on today don't even have the name of the deceased I'm looking for.
This cemetery has bitter sweet memories for me. I never knew my grandfather on my father's side, as he passed away before I was born, but I've always wanted to know as much about him as there was to know. I used to love looking at his war medals when I was young and unfortunately these medals and some photos were all I ever really got to know about him. I found out later in life that he was buried at this cemetery, in what I believe is part of a war memorial section of the grounds. It took several hours of wandering around the beautifully kept, peaceful, and serene grounds before I located his plaque. My own father had never been to see his dad's last resting place, and after telling him that I had found it, we both made plans to visit it together. Unfortunately my father passed away before we ever got the chance to visit it together. I am happy that there is a physical place with such tranquility about it that I can visit to connect with my father's father, and in this way, I feel like I'm connecting three generations together when I'm here, and there is no better place than this to be able to make that connection.
