There are more than 1000 people buried on Port Arthur's Isle of the Dead. And while we many never know all the names of those interred on this tiny little island, recent years have seen a great deal of research being done, and this booklet is a collection of details of some of them.
While many questions remain about the little island, what is apparent is that all classes, officials, soldiers, wives, children, Point Puer boys, paupers, insane and even sailors are buried alongside hundred of convicts.
