The Stockton General Cemetery is divided into denominational and general portions. A graphic display of its layout has been erected at the entrance to assist persons in locating graves. The grounds are well maintained, clear of litter, grass mown and weeds under control. There is a number of fallen and broken stones, whether caused by vandalism or subsidence is difficult to say.
Included amongst the inscriptions are several for men who lost their lives during the second world war when coastal vessels operated by BHP between Newcastle, Port Kembla and Whyalla were sunk near the coast by enemy action.
Robert Tozer visited and photographed all visible inscriptions in April 2003 and the inscription list has been compiled from those images by Roma Waldron and Reg McDonell. In compiling the list, extensive reference has been made to the NSW indexes of births, deaths and marriages and to military records for further information. The images may be viewed and download from the list of inscriptions for this cemetery.
The Stockton Cemetery is administered and maintained by the Newcastle City Council. Contact Council at 282 King Street, Newcastle; phone: 02 4974 2000; email: firstname.lastname@example.org
