New England Highway,






The information on Glencoe General Cemetery was initially supplied by Mrs Dorothy Griffey, who listed all visible inscriptions at this site in 1991. She said that the cemetery was in good order when transcribed.

More recently, some additional data was received from 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 photographed the cemetery and has contributed his pictures. This provided not only images of the inscriptions but also an opportunity to further update the data. Denis says that the cemetery presently contains 73 headstones with a couple of unmarked graves. It is in good order apart from one of the older sandstone headstones which lies in pieces on the ground. A few others are starting to lean backwards with one on quite a significant lean.

The list of inscriptions for this cemetery was compiled with reference to the NSW indexes of births, deaths and marriages for further information. Denis' images may be viewed by clicking the icons on the inscription list.

Glencoe is a village on the New England Highway, 22km south of Glen Innes. The cemetery is situated on a small rise behind the sport and recreation ground on the western side of the highway and is easily accessible through two gates.

Glencoe General Cemetery is administered by the Glen Innes Severn Shire Council. For further information, contact Council at PO Box 61, Glen Innes NSW 2370; phone 02 6730 2300; email: council@gisc.nsw.gov.au
