Comments:Daniel Henderson was originally buried in Horseman’s Gully, an ungazetted cemetery. The mining company which took over the site in 1995, agreed to pay for the exhumation of the eight men buried there, who were then relocated and re-interred at the nearby Darlot Cemetery. The deceased is one of those eight.
