Yetholme Anglican Cemetery

Address: Porters Lane, Yetholme 2795 NSW     Inscriptions for Yetholme Anglican Cemetery

Inscriptions at this little Anglican cemetery of St Paul's date from 1873. Many are roughly inscribed names and dates on small concrete slabs set at ground level with no other information. Because they are horizontal and thus fully exposed to the elements, a number of them are now very difficult to read. A number of small concrete crosses also set at ground level no doubt indicate otherwise unmarked graves. Within the cemetery is a small memorial garden that was dedicated on 5 April 1981. The details of plaques mounted on the garden wall have been included in this list.

When we visited the cemetery on 22 February 2006, we found it in excellent condition, well maintained with the grass cut and trimmed and the grounds free of broken glass and rabbit holes. We found no evidence of vandalism. Jean and I made digital images and notes of all visible inscriptions. In compiling the list of inscriptions, we also referred to the NSW indexes of births, deaths and marriage and to the World War 1 and World War 2 Nominal Rolls for further information. The images may be viewed and downloaded from the list of all inscriptions for this cemetery.
