off Lighthouse Road,
This list of inscriptions at Arakoon Cemetery was compiled by Connie Ball from digital images she took of all headstones and plaques on 26th December 2005.
She says that the cemetery comprises a general section, a columbarium and a lawn section. The earliest inscription she found is dated 1903. Connie remarked that the cemetery is well maintained even though it appears to have no reticulated water supply.
In compiling the list, reference was made to the NSW indexes of births, deaths and marriages and to military rolls for further information. The assistance of Janette Downey in this research is gratefully acknowledged. Connie's images may be viewed and downloaded from the list of inscriptions for this cemetery.
From South West Rocks head towards Kempsey and before the first bridge turn left into Arakoon Road. Follow this for approximately 1km, past the waste disposal centre, then turn right into Lighthouse Road from where it is about 200m to the cemetery.
The cemetery is administered and maintained by the Kempsey Shire Council. Contact Council at PO Box 78, West Kempsey NSW 2440; phone: 02 6566 3205; email: firstname.lastname@example.org
