Coolah General Cemetery
Address: Walker Street, Coolah 2843 NSW
This well maintained cemetery contains a large monumental section and what appears to be the beginning of a lawn cemetery but it lacks a columbarium. The Anglican, Catholic and Presbyterian portions are signposted but there are no row markers. The internal roadway is sealed, litterbins are installed and town water is available. There are no seats or amenities. Glass from broken flower containers was a problem in some areas.
We found memorials dating from 1871, most of which are marble or granite that display a wide range of masonry skills. There are a few early sandstone monuments, some in excellent condition, a couple eroded.
We visited the cemetery on two occasions in June and July 2004, making digital images and notes of every visible inscription. In compiling this list, we also referred to the NSW indexes of births, deaths and marriages and to the death and funeral notices and obituaries published in the Mudgee Guardian & Gulgong Advertiser. We are also grateful for a partial list of unmarked graves from the Council. In that respect, please note that inscriptions shown as “unmarked” may give a date of burial rather than a date of death. Digital images of inscriptions may be viewed and downloaded from the list of all inscriptions for this cemetery.
