When originally visited in June 2002, the cemetery grounds were badly overgrown and the knee-high grass and weeds made it difficult to move around. On our subsequent visit in May 2004, we found that some reduction in the overgrowth had taken place but much remains to be done.
For the most part, the monuments were intact, but several fallen and broken stones were located in the long grass and there are probably more to be found if the grounds were properly cleaned up. One early stone referred to by locals as commemorating a death at the hands of bushrangers appears to be missing. We found inscriptions dating from 1864 to 2003.
In 2008, Roberta and Arnold Sigston discovered the badly overgrown Foster graves. They cleared away the vegetation and refurbished the monuments and enclosing fences. We are grateful for images they took of the graves after their restoration work was completed.
Jean and I made digital images and notes of all visible inscriptions in June 2002 and updated these on 27 May 2004. In compiling this list, we also referred to the NSW indexes of births, deaths and marriages and to the death and funeral announcements and obituaries published in the Mudgee Guardian & Gulgong Advertiser.
Note: On a subsequent update of the cemetery in June 2011, we were pleased to see the transformation that had taken place since our previous visit. The grounds are now clear of undergrowth, mown and trimmed. Some renovation of monuments has also taken place.
A village 53km south of Mudgee, Pyramul is reached by road from Mudgee via the Hill End Road and Pyramul Road that turns off the former at Grattai. The cemetery is inside the Anglican Church grounds on the southern side of the Grattai Road, about 250m east of the village.
The cemetery is administered by the Bathurst Diocese of the Anglican Church of Australia. For further information, contact the Diocesan Office at 3 Church Street, Bathurst NSW 2795 Australia. (firstname.lastname@example.org).
