The Bight (Wingham) Cemetery occupies a small site off the Wingham – Tinonee Road. Earliest inscriptions date from 1859 and the cemetery is still in use with recent burials noted. At the time of listing it needed to be mowed but was in good order with no sign of vandalism. Encroachment of undergrowth from adjoining land is beginning to obscure some graves and needs to be removed. There are no facilities provided.

There are no markers defining denominational areas, rows or individual grave numbers. There is no columbarium.

Digital images of all visible inscriptions were made by Ray Cork during October 2008. His images may be downloaded from the list of inscriptions for this cemetery. Ray compiled the inscription list with reference to the NSW indices of births, deaths and marriages and the Australian War Memorial online military rolls for additional information.

The Bight Cemetery is about 1.6km east of the Manning River on the northern side of the Wingham - Tinonee Road and is visible from the road.

The Bight (Wingham) Cemetery is administered by Greater Taree City Council. For further information contact Council at PO Box 482, Taree, NSW, 2430; phone 02 6592 5399; email gtaree@gtcc.nsw.gov.au.
