What We Record

The Australian Cemeteries Index records the following information.

Headstone or plaque inscriptions that were present when the cemetery was photographed.

The spouse, parents and childrens names if shown on the inscription or can be obtained from other reliable sources.

Other general information in the Other Information column.

Abbreviations are used for common words and phrases.

Contact details for the authority responsible for the cemetery, on the main page of each cemetery. In regional areas public cemeteries are generally the responsibility of the local Council, however many did not acquire the responsibility until relatively recently. Before then cemeteries were usually administered by independent trusts. The quality of the records passed on to local Councils therefore varies greatly.
