Yeoval General Cemetery
Address: Tremain Drive, Yeoval 2868 NSW Inscriptions for Yeoval General Cemetery
This site is divided into denominational portions but, other than the Catholic and Baptist portions, they are not identified in any way. It also contains a memorial wall for ashes, erected in recent years from public subscription, and a small cenotaph.
The cemetery appears to be a little more than 100 years old; the earliest memorial we found was dated 1894. When we visited, most of the site had been roughly mown but the areas around the graves had not been trimmed. An attempt by someone to create a garden had been overtaken by the drought. It is fenced but there are no amenities.
This list was compiled from digital images that Jean and I made of every visible inscription and from notes taken on site on 19 and 28 November 2002. We also consulted the NSW index of births, deaths and marriages to help determine some names and dates that were difficult to read and for additional information. Images of inscriptions may be viewed and downloaded from the list of all inscriptions for this cemetery.
