Sorry for the delay but here are the photos for William Thomas Piggott, buried in Ivanhoe NSW. The owner has informed me a deal has been struck with the shire and land will be traded to allow a road into the grave site. The fenced off area contains the graves of approximately 9 people which are both marked and unmarked.
Ken Medway Great photos. William Thomas PIGGOTT had two months earlier in July 1888 been involved in the exhumation of a baby on a property that had been murdered by its father. There was no mention of this at all in the reports of the inquest into the S/C death. Poor bastard.
