Quirindi Lawn Cemetery occupies a substantial portion of the south-west corner of the general cemetery site. We found it in excellent condition, despite the drought conditions that still prevailed when we visited it in September 2007. From the dates on the inscriptions, the lawn cemetery appears to have commenced in the late 1950s. Also within the grounds is a substantial columbarium that displays about 100 plaques that date from the mid-1980s
The rows in the lawn area are separated by concrete beams on which the horizontal bronze plaques are set facing each other so that it is possible to walk along each beam and read the inscriptions relating to the graves on each side of it without walking on the graves themselves - an excellent system. Unfortunately, there are no row markers.
Digital images of the inscriptions may be downloaded from the list of inscriptions for this cemetery. That list was compiled with reference to the NSW BDM indexes and to military records for additional information.
From Quirindi's main street (George Street), turn east at the roundabout and follow Henry and Dewhurst Streets towards Wallabadah for 1.5km; turn right into Russell Street, from where it is 0.4km to the cemetery entrance.
The Quirindi Lawn Cemetery is administered by the Liverpool Plains Shire Council. For further Information, contact Council at 60 Station Street, Quirindi NSW 2343; telephone: 02 67461755; email: firstname.lastname@example.org
