Cambrai Rheinthal Lutheran
485 Lake Moodie Road
A small cemetery off the main road between Sedan and Cambrai. Alongside is the remains of the railway line that travelled from Monato to Sedan that has been long ripped up.
The Mid Murray Council does not have any burials recorded on their webite. The vast majority of graves are marked with metal plates.
The first burial was in 1879 and the last in 1911. Over half of the observed burials were for children under the age of 18, including a number of stillborns.
A tender was requested and sites for a new cemetery in 1886. See nla.gov.au/nla.news-article93842344.
The Rheinthal Church was located a few kilometers south west on the Sedan-Cambrai Road. It was auctioned off in 1934. See nla.gov.au/nla.news-article165696749. There is a historical marker locating the spot.
An article in the Leader (Angaston) was the cemetery was already closed by July 1950. See nla.gov.au/nla.news-article165721407.
The general condition of the cemetery is good. Although no obvious maintence is made, the grass outside the cemetery is mown. There are no weeds or overgrowth on the grave sites. All the headstones are legible.
This site was visited in late December, taken with a Canon Powershot camera.
Travelling along the Sedan-Cambrai Road (Ridley Road), travelling approximately 4km south of Sedan or 5km north of Cambai, turn east onto Pine Hut Road. Drive along for 2 km until reaching the intersection with Lake Moodie road. Turn right and after 1km at the old railway crossing, enter the cemetery. Travel along the track for a short distance before finding the grounds. Be aware some signage does have Moodie and Moody spelling.
