Information regarding burials at Booroolong General Cemetery has been kindly supplied by Heather Burke. The data was collected for the "Cemeteries/Burials New England Project (2000)" initiated by Professor Iain Davidson and funded by a Research Infrastructure Block Grant, University of New England. The data was collected with the assistance of Arnold Goode (Uralla), Helen Nancarrow and Bruce Cady (Kelly's Plains), Nan Mullen (Wollomombi), Peter Chambers (Saumarez Ponds), David and Beverley Barratt (Tamworth).
The list of inscriptions includes several unmarked but known burials, details of which have been derived from church records and oral history. There is one grave without a headstone but marked by a cast iron grave surround.
Like the Booroolong Frog, the Booroolong Cemetery is also endangered. The abovementioned Project report indicates that the cemetery is in poor condition, its fencing collapsed, stock grazes through it and many of the headstones are broken.
The list of inscriptions for this cemetery was compiled with reference to the NSW indexes of births, deaths and marriages for further information.
Currently, there are no images of the inscriptions available. Anyone who is willing and able to photograph the inscriptions, please contact Reg McDonell.
