Walter Lindrum
billiards player
1898 - 1960

Walter Lindrum's grave in Melbourne General Cemetery comes as quite a surprise. Amongst the traditional and demure surrounding tombstones, Walter Lindrum's grave is in the form of a billiard table complete with balls and cue. This is highly appropriate for a world master of his sport.
