Dural Uniting Church Cemetery

Address: Derriwong Road, Dural 2158 NSW     Inscriptions for Dural Uniting Church Cemetery

The Dural Uniting Church Cemetery embraces a monumental portion that contains inscriptions dating from 1865, a lawn section that appears to have been established in the 1980s and a columbarium (or memorial wall) that displays plaques dating from 1941. Most of the old monuments are in surprisingly good condition and are quite beautiful in their design and execution. The grounds were found in good order and well maintained.

Michael Brookhouse visited the cemetery early in 2009 and made digital images of all visible inscriptions. His pictures may downloaded from the list of all inscriptions for this cemetery. That list was compiled from Mick's images and with reference to the NSW BDM indices and the AWM online military rolls for additional information. We also wish to acknowledge with thanks further information and clarifications provided by Marilynne Black, who has extensively researched her close family links with this cemetery.
