The graves of William and Rebecca Cox and other family members in the St Matthew’s Anglican churchyard at Windsor have been professionally conserved by heritage stonemasons from Rookwood Cemetery, commissioned by Cox descendants.

William Cox gained his place in Australian history by building the first road over the Blue Mountains 200 years ago.

At the time he lived at Clarendon, which stood in Dight Street, Richmond, behind the RAAF base.
