Our Publications

 Leaving their Mark


Our  book  "Leaving their mark"  documents, through short biographies, the lives of some of the movers and shakers who were instrumental in the making of Marvellous Melbourne.  Many were involved in moulding our society, and we honour their contribution and thank them for leaving their mark.  

Our first print run of this book has now sold out.  A second edition is being prepared and hopefully will be available for distribution by mid-2020.



Copies of our book are available via:

  • The Boroondara (Kew) Cemetery office (during work hours)
  • Email to info@fobkc.org

Cost is $25.00 (add $10 for postage)

If you are interested in the history of Melbourne then this book is invaluable.
