Comments:William Barker was originally buried in Horseman’s Gully, an un-gazetted 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.
