Cardwell Cemetery contains a relatively small proportion of older monuments dating from 1865 and a larger proportion of lawn graves. As yet, there is no columbarium on the site. The grounds are unfenced but maintained in excellent condition by Cassowary Coast Regional Council. The inscriptions are generally in good condition and legible and survived cyclone Yasi that devastated this area in 2011.
Peter and Karen Patterson-Kane visited the cemetery in October 2011 and made digital images and a list of all visible inscriptions. In compiling the list of inscriptions for this cemetery, reference was made to the Queensland online indices of births, deaths and marriages and to the Australian War Memorial online military rolls for additional information.
From Cardwell CBD, head north on the Bruce Highway for 2.5km, turn left over the railway line and then left again for 100m to the cemetery entrance.
Cardwell Cemetery is administered by Cassowary Coast Regional Council. For further information, contact Council at PO Box 887, Innisfail Qld 4860; phone 07 4040 2222; email: firstname.lastname@example.org
