Ebenezer Uniting Church, originally erected as a Presbyterian Chapel, dates from early 19th century. It is claimed to be the oldest surviving church building in Australia. Its associated cemetery is said to have received it first burial in 1812, the oldest inscription extant being dated 1819, and it is still in use for the interment of ashes. The sandstone schoolhouse is next to the church.
Michael Brookhouse made digital images of all legible inscriptions when he visited the site in October 2011. His pictures may be downloaded from the list of inscriptions for this cemetery. That list was compiled from Mick's images and with reference to the NSW indices of births, deaths and marriages and to the Australian War Memorial online military rolls for additional information.
Ebenezer Cemetery is 13km north-east of Windsor. From Windsor take the Wilberforce Road to Wilberforce, turn right onto King Road, continue onto Sackville Road, then right onto Tizzana Road and right onto Coromandel Road. The cemetery is on the southern (right hand side) of the road. Lat -33.536029, Long 150.891421
