When we visited the site, the track to the cemetery was closed in places by fallen timber following a windstorm and we had to make several deviations. The cemetery appears to have been established around 1884 as there are several stones dating from that period. The denominational portions are not indicated. There is no sign of vandalism and the graves are all accessible. However the grounds were in need of attention.
This list was compiled from digital images and notes that Jean and I made of every visible inscription on 4 February 2005. We also consulted the NSW index of births, deaths and marriages to help determine difficult to read names and dates and for further information.
Peel is a village 13km north of Bathurst on the road to Sofala. The cemetery is situated off the Bathurst Road 1 km south of the village. It is not visible from the road and is not signposted but is accessed via a gate opposite the property "Brucedale".
Until 2005, the cemetery was the responsibility of Evans Shire Council. It is now administered by the Bathurst Regional Council, PMB 17, Bathurst NSW 2795; phone 02 6331 1622; email: firstname.lastname@example.org
