This well maintained cemetery contains inscriptions dating from 1894. It is divided into denominational portions and also includes a columbarium with inscriptions from as early as 1965. The modern lawn cemetery appears to have been commenced around 1995.

Robert Tozer visited the cemetery in October 2006 and made digital images of all inscriptions. Roma Waldron subsequently prepared the list of inscriptions from those images. In compiling the list, extensive reference was made to the NSW indexes of births, deaths and marriages and to military records for further information. The assistance of Janette Downey in this research is gratefully acknowledged. The images may be viewed and downloaded from the list of all inscriptions for this cemetery.

From the village, head south along the New England Highway, turn right into St Heliers Street and then first left into Segenhoe Street. The cemetery is on the right hand side of the street.
