I also was unable to find Stanley's grave around 2009. (?) However the wonderful people at the church knew exactly where it was and following their advice found it easily. From what I recall he was reburied some years after his initial resting place near the church. It is a very historic section of the burial ground and well worth a visit to anyone interested in early Australian history

I revisited the Owen Stanley grave at Cammeray in Sydney again - this time taking a broom. I swept the leaves and dust form the top and found an inscription. I acquired some white chalk and inserted it in the grooves to reveal the full wording. I shall send Keith Jackson a photo to upload.

Nearby the grave of Owen Stanley is that of Commodore Goodenough who died at sea in 1875 from an arrow wound received in Santa Cruz. So people who bestowed names on New Guinea are well represented in this burial ground. Richard Pearse

Thanks Bob Lawrence. I too have been searching for his grave in the St Thomas Graveyard in Cammeray,but unable to find it.Now know it is unmarked and there is a tablet inscription in the Church. I can now find the location. I'm also an ASOPian. Richard Pearse
