This burial site is of the Wangku-Murra trial people The Wangku-Murra area extended west to Coopers Creek, south to Maryilco and north to Bundeena and to the east as far as the Wilson River. The custom of burying the deceased facing north, as seen in the two headstones, these belong to a long descent of Aboriginal descendents and European union. The first burial is unknown but the last burial was in 1950 of a young Aboriginal named Ossie Rowland of Nockatunga. Many others are descendants of "Chookoo" who died near Ritchie's well. Many were removed to coastal reserves.
