These are notes taken from around 2005 on. Some of the location information is from the GSQ burial register collection. Some names have been transcribed in order to match whether the cemetery found matches the one being looked for. They are not complete transcriptions!

Other source data, I cannot remember

Outside queensland cemetery descriptions are typically quick assessments taken while driving past. Hopefully we also recorded a GPS location to approximate the locations.
And use the satnav, street directory etc for "Cemetery Road".

comments: the burial register does not exist. The present caretaker Mr E Newlove has marked some of the oldgraves with concrete blocks and written the known details in the wet concrete. These probably won't stay legible for long as they will have soil washed down the hilll which will cover them. There are 4 newly dug graves in the cemetery without monumental inscriptions.
