According to the page, the graves had been sinking into each other. A new plinth was built to stabilise the graves and place the headstones upon. This work was done by volunteers. These are the graves of my 3rd great grandparents & their son. I can't begin to express how grateful I am to the person who told me about it (because I probably wouldn't know about it if she hadn't told me) & to the people who have restored the graves. :)

I'm looking forward to visiting these graves during the Christmas holidays. I want to get a closer look at gravestone inscriptions & the design on the cross.
