This publication is about the only marked grave at the Edward's Reef Burial Ground that of Christina Shaw.This is a diary written by Alec Shaw, Christina 's son and is an account of a fourteen-day journey made by Alec in 1930 from Ballarat to The Springs, Donnelly's Creek and Edwards Reef, as a pilgrimage to his mother's grave. He was in his late sixties at the time his son Donald joined him and provided the transport.Previously the only markings on this grave was the copper plate placed there in 1930 by Alec Shaw. In 2016 I contacted the family members and asked them if they would like to see some sort of signage to commemorate her grave. They were overwhelmed, and with the kind permission of the Aberfeldy Cemetery Trust I collaborated with the family to what information should be put on the interpretation sign.Funding was provided from both the family and our Aberfeldy Track Incorporation the West Gippsland Relic, Mining and Heritage Protection Inc. (www.westgippslandinc.com.au), which is funded by volunteers and donations.
