For those of you who wonder what The Headstone Project do when we aren't swanning around meeting politicians and doing unveilings wonder no longer. The back end of the operation is hard graft with concrete.
The team got together yesterday for a working bee to clean out the shed, do a couple of plaques at Cornelian Bay and replace some stock used recently - our next job at Devonport is just around the corner. ... See MoreSee Less

My great grandfather, received a headstone from this wonderful project. We had planned on visiting him last year but Covid19 prevented that. We now will pay our respects to him in the very near future at Carr Villa Cemetery.
Thank you for this remarkable service.
Awesome work well done Guardians of our forgotten fallen⚘❤thank you

We join with our long-standing supporter Eric Abetz in welcoming the Bill that passed the Senate today allowing donations to the Tasmanian Headstone Project and to Community and Men’s’ Sheds to be claimed as deductible from the donor’s tax return.
This measure will make it just that bit easier to attract donations that allow us to continue our work around Tasmania recognising the service of all our returned World War 1 veterans. ... See MoreSee Less
