The Bathurst Cemetery represents a large slice of the history of Bathurst with the "old" Monumental Section dating back to 1867. The Monumental Section contains many historic graves including the grave of former Prime Minister, Ben Chifley in the Catholic Portion. The Maranatha Lawn Cemetery was established in 1977 and it includes lawn graves, a rose garden and niche walls for ashes as well as the Birralee Baby Section.
In 2013 a crematorium was opened at the Bathurst Cemetery and at this time the management of the cemetery and crematorium was contracted to Norwood Park
