The small cemetery was associated with the rural Anglican church established in 1861 on a glebe within Ginninderra Station donated by owner by Charles Campbell. By 1904 the church was closed and in ruin with the decline of commercial power of the area and the rise of nearby Hall. The cemetery, containing about 18 burials, was in severe decay and subsequently the memorials and the church were all obliterated by further decay, animal grazing, vandalism and development.

With the creation of the Federal Capital Territory the land was resumed and reserved for residential development. The site was mostly built over for the suburb of Evatt in the 1970s. A small urban open space remains with heritage signage and a memorial to the known burials. The burials remain in place.
