THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS. Images and inscriptions are being uploaded as they become available and are listed, checked and researched.
Ayr General Cemetery comprises a monumental section, a lawn cemetery and columbaria. There is also a number of vaults on the site. The cemetery is maintained in good condition by Burdekin Shire Council.
Saskia Vollema-Creek has contributed her images which she made in late 2009. She intends to complete the project in due course. Saskia's images may be downloaded from the list of inscriptions for this cemetery. That list was compiled from the images and with reference to the Queensland indices of births, deaths and marriages and to the Australian War Memorial's online military rolls for additional information.
Burdekin Shire Council provides an online register for both of the cemeteries it administers (at Ayr and Home Hill) that provides much additional and useful information for researchers - see URL below.
Take the Bruce Highway north-west out of town for 2km. The cemetery entrance is on the left hand side of the road.
Ayr General Cemetery is administered by the Burdekin Shire Council. For further information, contact Council at PO Box 974, Ayr QLD 4807; phone 07 4783 9800; email firstname.lastname@example.org
