Brooklyn General Cemetery
Address: Brooklyn Road, Brooklyn 2083 NSW
When Roy Smith visited Brooklyn General Cemetery in 2004, he says that it was is good order and well maintained with lawns mowed. The monuments were also generally in good condition and erect with no obvious signs of vandalism. There are no amenities on site.
The earliest inscription extant is dated 1902. One headstone of interest is that of Robert Buie a Lewis Gunner in WW1 who shot down Baron Von Richthofen, better known as The Red Baron, on the 21 April 1918.
Roy made digital images of all visible inscriptions and compiled the list of all inscriptions for this cemetery. Reference was made to the NSW indices of births, deaths and marriages and to the Australian War Memorial's online military rolls for additional information.
