Since the publication of Where First Fleeters Lie in 1990, the Fellowship has conducted some 40 additional ceremonies. Dispatched Downunder brings the record up to date.


The earlier book has been rewritten. All of the photographs have been retained and more added; all of the maps have been redrawn and grave locations closely specified; additional biographical material has been added; gravestone shapes have been recorded; an Index has been provided; and the material has been reorganised as to chronology and locations. Crucially, the author has enlarged the scope of the earlier book.


Working with the Research Director, John Boyd, an attempt has been made to record, in detailed Appendices, the known resting place of each and every man, woman and child who arrived on the First Fleet.
