Cemetery 139 - Ben Lomond

Ben Lomond

Ben Lomond Road,

Ben Lomond





The information on Ben Lomond General Cemetery came initially from Mrs Dorothy Griffey, who listed all visible inscriptions at this site in 1989. Details of several known but unmarked graves, as well as two subsequent burials, were added to her original list from information supplied by Council.

Further data was provided by Heather Burke. That 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).

On 14 September 2007, Denis Woolaston visited the cemetery and photographed every visible inscription. This has provided a further opportunity to update the record and attach images of the marked graves. The three records, each roughly a decade apart, demonstrate the change that occurs in all cemeteries as earlier markers decay or disappear.

Denis commented that the cemetery presently contains 31 headstones or markers and several graves without markers. It is in good order with a flagpole and contains two beautiful ornate column headstones. His images may be viewed and downloaded from the list of inscriptions for this cemetery.

From Guyra, take the New England Highway north towards Glen Innes for 15km. The Ben Lomond turn off is just past the village of Llangothlin, from where it is 13km to Ben Lomond.

The cemetery is administered by the Guyra Shire Council. For further information, contact Council at PO Box 207, Guyra NSW 2365; phone: 02 6779 1577; email: council@guyra.nsw.gov.au
