Address: Hiscock Road, Woodhill 4285 QLD
Information published by Logan City Council on its website, states that Woodhill Cemetery was gazetted on 26 April 1879, although was called the Veresdale Cemetery at the time. Trustees included William Tuton Walker, Verdon Hinchcliffe, John Hopkins, Archibald Auld, John Waters, David Ferguson and George Smith. Several of these pioneers are buried in the cemetery they administered.
Woodhill Cemetery covers an area of about one hectare. It is well fenced and the grounds are well maintained. A feature of the cemetery is an attractive lytch gate that was erected by F W Wilbraham in 1935 (see image above). It provides bench seating and tank water. The vehicle entrance is at the western end of the cemetery. In recent years, a lawn section has been added and a columbarium erected in the grounds, the latter as yet little used.
Peter Arthur visited the site in May 2010 and made digital images of all visible inscriptions. He found inscriptions dating from 1876 to the present day. The monuments are generally in good condition and legible. Peter's images may be viewed via the list of all inscriptions for this cemetery. That list was compiled with reference to the Queensland indices of births, deaths and marriages and to the Australian War Memorial online military rolls for additional information.
