A convex set $C\subseteq X^{\ast}\times X$ is said to admit the Generalised Banach-Dieudonn\'{e} property (GBDP) if the weak$^{\ast}$-strong closure $\overline{C}^{w^{\ast}\times s}$ is characterised as the smallest set containing $C$ that is closed to all limits of its \emph{bounded} and weak$^{\ast}\times$s convergent nets. We show that all such convex sets $C\subseteq X^{\ast}\times X$ admit the GBDP when $X$ is either a separable dual Banach space or a reflexive Banach space. The situation in a general Banach space is more complicated, but we show that for a maximal monotone operator $T\subseteq X\times X^{\ast}$ with $0\in\func{int}\func{co} \func{Range}T$, when we use the embedding $\hat{T}\subseteq X^{\ast}\times X^{\ast\ast}$ then it admits representative functions whose epigraphs have the GBDP. Using the Lipschitz regularisation \cite{Borwein:1} this allows us to answer some outstanding problems regarding the embedding of Fitzpatrick and Penot representative functions for nonreflexive spaces. In particular, we show that the natural conjugate of the Fitzpatrick function, $\widehat{\mathcal{F}_{T}}^{\ast}:X^{\ast}\times X^{\ast\ast}\rightarrow \overline{\mathbf{R}}$ is itself a representative function when $T\subseteq X\times X^{\ast}$ is maximal monotone.
