In 1926 the Hinchinbrook Shire Council took over the care of this cemetery. At the time, it was described by local poet Dan Sheahan as a 'swamp' and a ‘desolate hollow’ and suggestions were already being made by locals that an alternative site is found for a cemetery (now the site of the New Ingham Cemetery). Earliest recorded burial was Wednesday, 12 September 1888. Interments can still be conducted in this Cemetery provided the family has a reserve or have the permission of a family to use their reserve.
