See all inscriptions

Macksville General Cemetery is a monumental cemetery comprised of Anglican, Catholic, Methodist, Presbyterian and Seventh Day Adventist portions that are all clearly signposted. A columbarium has been added, probably in the 1990s, although there a several memorial plaques of much earlier date.

The cemetery was photographed and listed by Sandra Cockbain in March 2010. She found the grounds in excellent condition, with lawns cut and grass trimmed around each grave. Although there are several fallen stones, the monuments are generally in good condition and the inscriptions legible.

Sandra's images may be viewed from the list of all inscriptions for this cemetery. In compiling the list, we referred to the NSW indices of births, deaths and marriages and to the Australian War Memorial online military rolls for additional information.
