Tuesday 7th May 2024 was an all hands day on Tristan da Cunha. Staff in all departments left their day-to-day jobs to come together and work as a community to extended the graveyard.

All men and vehicles worked steadily, collecting stone from the 1961 Volcano stone, and extending the cemetery's boundary walls.
