Deepwater Cemetery was visited and photographed by Denis Woolaston on 24 Jul 2008. He says that the cemetery is fenced, is in relatively good order and is still in use. It includes a columbarium and a cenotaph bearing the names of 49 servicemen and women.

Denis says: "Unfortunately there are numerous unmarked graves. Some are represented with white metal marker welded to star picket posts and others with just short wooden stakes that will disappear with time. Some of the metal markers have a small plaque attached with only the initial and surname of the deceased. There are also a few unmarked grave surrounds. One marble headstone lies shattered on the ground with part of the surname missing. All were photographed on a bleak and miserable day with the temperature hovering around 8 degrees: it began to rain soon after."

Denis recorded inscriptions that date from 1887 to the present day. His images may be downloaded from the list of inscriptions for this cemetery. That list was compiled from his images and with reference to the NSW BDM indices and AWM military records for additional information.

Deepwater is a small town on the New England Highway, 40km north of Glen Innes. The cemetery, which is not signposted, is accessed via a gravel lane on the western side of the Wellingrove Road (Wise St) south of the town.

The Deepwater Cemetery is administered by the Glen Innes Severn Council. For further information, contact Council at PO Box 61, Glen Innes NSW 2370; phone: 02 6730 2300; email : council@gisc.nsw.gov.au
