Cemetery Historian David Weatherill will document the story of the hunt for the unmarked graves on the edges of La Trobe University – formerly Mont Park and the Preston Cemetery which took place in 2013. Claims were made that up too 600 deceased individuals from the former Mont Park mental and military hospitals, dating from 1915 to the 1930’s, had been buried in an unmarked cemetery area adjacent to the Strathallan (Preston) Cemetery. Research and documentary evidence has indicated that the burials did not take place.
