Camden General Cemetery is located approximately 2km south west of the town. It occupies an elevated position on the eastern side of Cawdor Rd 100m north of the intersection of Burragorang Rd. The site embraces the Camden War Cemetery, which has been listed separately.

Camden Cemetery is maintained in good condition and at the time of listing was recently mowed. Denominational areas are clearly marked, with row numbering in the Anglican portion only. No grave numbering is visible. Inscriptions are generally in good conditional and legible. Earliest inscriptions date from 1901. There are no facilities provided.

There is a small columbarium and in the adjacent areas memorial plaques can be seen at the base of trees. It is not known whether the persons named on these are actually buried at this location or not but the names have been included in the list of inscriptions.

The digital images were taken by Ray Cork during June 2009. His images may be downloaded from the list of inscriptions for this cemetery. Ray also compiled the inscription list with reference to the NSW BDM online search facility and the Australian War Memorial Nominal Rolls for WW1 and WW2.

From Camden take Argyle St south from the main Camden shopping centre. At the southern end of the shopping centre Argyle St runs into Cawdor Rd. When travelling along Cawdor Road you will pass the Camden Catholic Cemetery on the right (Cawdor Uniting Church Cemetery is further along, roughly another 5 klms and is on the LHS past Westbrook Road).

Camden General Cemetery is administered by Camden Council. For further information, contact council at PO Box 183 Camden NSW 2570; phone 02 4654 7777; email mail@camden.nsw.gov.au
