JUDITH DUNN OAM, FPDHS is a tour guide and sought-after public speaker, who received an Order of Australia medal for services to history and heritage and holds a Parramatta and District Historical Society Fellowship (FPDHS) for researching and recording Parramatta history. In 1991, Judith built upon Vernon W. E. Goodin’s 1964 publication St. John’s Cemetery, Parramatta: Monumental Inscriptions and Key to Graves by updating his inventory of extant and / or previously recorded marked graves. Judith published this updated Goodin-Dunn Inventory in her book The Parramatta Cemeteries: St. John’s.
