Today I would like to say a big thank you to Fay & Des Menzel. They have done an amazing job of making over the grave site in Corack of William & Eliza FREE. Fay and Des have put in a lot of time, effort and their own funds to restore the memory of part of our heritage. William FREE is my Great, Great Grandfather on my mother’s side of the family and our line descends down from my Great Grandfather Alfred FREE who came to Western Australia. Alfred FREE’s youngest brother Oswald Hawsuel Ernest FREE is the line that Des Menzel descends from.
Fay & Des made contact with me in April this year and have been very helpful with filling in a lot of gaps in Oswald FREE’s line. They have also supplied a number of beautiful photo’s to add to the collection.
Below is a brief outline of the work done at Corack Cemetery as written by Fay.
