Dressing of the Graves, Kernewek Lowender
Date Tue 14th May 2019 to Wed 15th May 2019
The 2019 Dressing the Graves ceremonies will be held on Tuesday 14 May at Greens Plains West (10:30 am) and Wallaroo (1:30 pm) and on Wednesday 15 May at Kadina (10:30 am) and Moonta (1:30 pm). Nominations are open now and must be received by 30 September 2018. Dressing of the Graves is a project sponsored by the Cornish Association of South Australia in conjunction with Kernewek Lowender.



It is intended to remember and honour the lives of our ancestors. The ceremony is very poignant, and floral tributes, welcoming groups, choirs and preparation of citations for the grave sites are done by local school students. The involvement of our school children lends the ceremonies a truly community atmosphere.

Each ceremony is a unique experience and they have developed into the highly regarded Kernewek Lowender event that Dressing the Graves has become since its inception at the 2001 Festival. Two hundred and eighty one (281) pioneer ancestors have been honoured since that time. Dressing the Graves has created an ongoing valuable legacy for the Copper Coast, and family history research per se, and the program is well grounded to continue strongly into the future.
