Address: Off Kamilaroi Highway, Curlewis 2381 NSW
Curlewis Cemetery presented a rather neglected appearance when Reg visited the site in September 2007. The cemetery is surrounded by trees and there are many trees within the grounds. In places, there were fallen branches and tree litter and the grass was due to be cut. Because of the abundance of trees, many of the headstones are stained by sap and nectar. However, most of the monuments are in good order, standing erect and there are no apparent signs of vandalism
The cemetery is fairly obviously divided into portions but none of these is signposted. The earliest inscription we found was dated 1903. There are many temporary markers and unmarked graves.
The digital images may be viewed from the list of inscriptions for this cemetery. That list was compiled with reference to the NSW BDM indexes and to military records for additional information.
