Casey Cardinia Remembers website

The Narre Warren and District Family History Group have complied a database of Monuments and Memorials in the City of Casey and Shire of Cardinia. This project has taken many hours of volunteer time to locate, photograph and transcribe the monuments and then to create the website which you can search at To show you the range of monuments and memorials on the website, we will look at the entries for Gembrook. All the photographs are from the Casey Cardinia Remembers website and used with permission.

This is the Centenary log at Gembrook, 1874-1974. It commemorates the timber industry and the work of the pioneer hardwood millers.

 This is the Avenue of Honour memorial for World War One Soldiers. The Casey Cardinia Remembers website has the full list of soldiers who are honoured, plus a photograph of each individual plaque.
This is the E.A.C Russell Memorial scoreboard at the Gembrook Football Grounds. E.A.C. 'Bill' Russell was involved in many organisations in Gembrook, owned timber mills and was also a Shire of Berwick Councillor and Shire President in 1962.
