These records are complete but there are relatively few headstones in the quite large grounds. It must be assumed that there are many more burials than these listed. Einasleigh is located at the base of the York Peninsula, in Queensland's north, on the road that runs from Mt. Garnet to Normandton.

It had brief glory as a mining town, with copper and gold being processed. Nowadays it is a sleepy village at the mouth of the Copperfield River Gorge, with the twisted remnants of the old railway line bent away down the river from the still standing eucalypt supports.

To reach Einasleigh or the nearby Forsayth, one has to drive north from Charters Towers to The Lynd, then turn NW on a gravel road and follow the signs. Alternatively you can proceed on bitumen from Mt Garnet, turn off to Forsayth, then take the gravel road back to Einasleigh.

Tracey Laughlin, who is the Great Niece of Thomas Giles, has kindly provided the following information:

Thomas was born 23 Dec 1887 at Gulgong in the district of Mudgee NSW and he died at Einasleigh, Queensland. He served during WWI enlisting on the 19th Aug 1914 at Randwick, NSW and landed on the Gaba Tepe Beach on the 25th Apr 1915. He was wounded three times; the first time was 10th May 1915 at Gaba Tepe, Gallipoli. He was evacuated to Limnos Is where he spent eight days before rejoining his battalion back at Gallipoli and was eventually evacuated with the rest of the battalion to Egypt.
He was then sent with his battalion to France where he was wounded for the second time at Poziers on the 18th Aug 1916; he was evacuated back to England where he was to send the next five months recuperating from severe gunshot wounds to the left shoulder, arm, thigh and leg. After recovering from his wounds, he was sent to the Somme, where he rejoined his battalion at the Battle of Bullecourt.
This is where he was wounded for the third time on the 20th Apr 1917 and once again, he found himself being evacuated back to England with severe gunshot wounds to the left leg and thigh, which ended his service and resulted in him finally being transported back to Australia where he was to spend three and half years in Randwick Hospital in NSW recovering. He was medically discharged 12th Mar 1918.
On the 3rd June 1944 Thomas once again enlisted, this time it was with the 17 Battalion Volunteer Defence Corps (QLD), Service No: Q220383 and was discharged on 21st Oct 1945.
