Walcha Catholic Cemetery
Address: Fitzroy Street, Walcha 2354 NSW
Walcha Catholic Cemetery appears to have been established in the mid 19th century, the earliest inscriptions extant being 1859, and it is still in use. The cemetery was surveyed and photographed for Australian Cemeteries Index during the first half of 2010. We found the monuments generally in good order and legible, although several of the older stones have fallen and broken and others are weathered and covered in lichen and so not easy to read. The grounds are maintained in good condition by Walcha Council, although rabbits were obviously a problem at the time the cemetery was surveyed.
That list was compiled from the images and with reference to the NSW indices of births, deaths and marriages and to the Australian War Memorial online military rolls for additional information.
