See all inscriptions

Nambucca Heads Cemetery occupies an undulating site not far from the ocean and dates from around the turn of the 20th century. It incorporates various denominational portions in the monumental area and extensive columbaria each side of the entrance. The grounds are maintained in good order by Nambucca Shire Council, but there are no amenities on site.

Sandra Cockbain has contributed the images she made of every visible inscription when she visited the cemetery at the end of March 2011. Her images show that the monuments are generally in good condition and legible. Sandra's pictures may be downloaded from the list of inscriptions for this cemetery. That list was compiled with reference to the NSW indices of births deaths and marriages and to the Australian War Memorial online military rolls for additional information
