The Dungog Cemetery is located on the edge of town and is the main cemetery for the Williams River Valley. It was established in the mid 1800's and was known as Hanley's Flat Cemetery. The cemetery contains approximately 2500 graves some of which have fallen into disrepair or disappeared completely. As well, several churches in Dungog have columbariums which contain the ashes of a further 700 people.
The cemetery is divided into denominational sections as well as having a general lawn cemetery, columbarium and a small War Cemetery. Colin and Lorraine Eyb began taking photographs and researching inscriptions in 2016 and continue to add more information each time they visit the area.
The task was completed in January 2018 when all available information on existing graves as well as unmarked graves has been entered. However, I'm sure that there are many other unmarked graves that we are unaware of. Information other than what is written on the headstone has been obtained with reference to the NSW Births, Deaths & Marriages website, the Australian War Memorial online Military Rolls and Central Coast Family History Society.
