Point Clare Cemetery
Address: Coolam Avenue, Point Clare 2250 NSW
THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS. Images and inscriptions are being uploaded incrementally as each section is completed, checked and researched.
Point Clare Cemetery is a large regional cemetery serving the Gosford district on the central coast of NSW and has been under the management of Gosford City Council since 1968. Records of burials prior to this time may be incomplete.
The cemetery comprises a monumental area divided into denominational portions and a modern lawn cemetery with memorial gardens for the placement of ashes. The monumental cemetery is closed, except for those holding pre-arranged rights of burial. The grounds are maintained in excellent condition by Council, all portions are clearly marked and amenities are provided on site. A large location map at the cemetery entrance graphically illustrates the cemetery layout.
The photographing and listing of inscriptions has been undertaken by Warren and Sue Dibley. At this stage, they have completed the General Lawn Cemetery and the Anglican monumental portion. Other monumental portions should follow in due course. Warren and Sue's images may be downloaded from the list of all inscriptions for this cemetery. That list is being compiled by Warren and Sue from their images and notes and with reference to the NSW births, deaths and marriages indices and also the Australian War Memorial online military rolls for additional information.
