Werris Creek Cemetery is an attractive site set in beautiful undulating country. It contains portions designated Catholic, Presbyterian, Methodist and Anglican. A modern lawn cemetery dates from 1988 and a columbarium was erected by community groups in 1994. A graphic display at the entrance (see picture above) illustrates the cemetery layout. There is an attractive avenue of pines leading from the street to the columbarium near the far boundary.
The Presbyterian and Methodist portions share in the luxury overflowing from the lush and meticulously trimmed lawns of the lawn cemetery situated between them. I understand that this beautiful area is the result of the regular attention of several local gentlemen and it is indeed a credit to them. In the Catholic portion, weeds have been controlled by the use of herbicide. However the Anglican portion was really in need of mowing and weed control when I visited the site in September 2007. There are no amenities.
Reg McDonell photographed every visible inscription on 26 and 27 September 2007. The inscription list has been compiled from those images and notes made at the time, and with reference to NSW BDM indexes and military records for additional information.
From the railway station, head north along Single Street for 1km. Immediately before the level crossing, turn right into Park Street and then left into Deeks Road. From there, it is 700m to Memorial Drive.
Werris Creek Cemetery is administered by the Liverpool Plains Shire Council. For further information, contact Council at PO Box 152, Quirindi NSW 2343; phone 02 6746 1755; email firstname.lastname@example.org
