According to the W.P.A. reading in April 1938, there were two markers in the cemetery.  W.P.A. also noted that there were 4 unmarked graves.  It is worth noting that the W.P.A. readings are not completely accurate.  They frequently overlooked marked graves and only read what was easy to reach and didn't venture into the "bush"  looking for markers.

Sometime prior to 1938, an unknown landowner in the Roach Community removed most of the long, flat markers from the cemetery to make a walkway to his house.

The following list was compiled by actual reading of the tombstones. All the information, excluding annotation, is written on the tombstone.
