Abstract

The different expressions of memory and identity evident in the tombstones of nineteenth-century Irish migrants in the Stawell general cemetery in western Victoria are presented with examples. The manner in which the iconographies and words inscribed on the tombstones highlight the social status, religious affiliation and affinity for the Irish homeland of the deceased is discussed.
