Australian Cemeteries Index
The purpose of this index is to provide a searchable data base for all cemetery inscriptions that have been recorded by the authors and contributors over several years. It is intended to be a useful tool for those researching their family history.
The index contains details of headstones from a number of cemeteries in Australia. It initially concentrated on cemeteries in regional NSW but is now expanding Australia wide.

What we Record
This is not a record of burials, but a record of inscriptions on headstones or plaques found in each cemetery. To see details about what we do and do not record, see the What we record link.
To conserve space, certain abbreviations are used for common words and phrases. For details see the Abbreviations link.
We are prepared to include details of unmarked graves in any of the cemeteries on this list, provided that reasonable evidence of burial at that cemetery accompanies the information (e.g. a death certificate; death transcription, undertaker's record; funeral notice, obituary etc.)
