Mount Cooper Cemetery Ando 1999.

Mount Cooper Cemetery.  The cemetery runs from the tiny little lone tree in the centre in the distance to the fenceline on the right.

 

The lone tree on the left is the one just visible in the distance photo. It is just an open paddick now with the headstones removed and attatched to a wall
