The Reedy Creek Cemetery is around 15 to 20 klm from Singleton on the Mirannie Road. Around 500 meteres from the Reedy Creek sign you will see the cemetery high on the crest of a hill to the right. (If you reach Saint John the Baptist Anglican Church you have gone too far!). To access the cemetery you need to enter a paddock via a gate from the road and take the track to the top of the hill.
While I am advised that visitors to the cemetery have right of access by the track, care is required. The paddock itself is private property. There are generally stock in the paddock so close the gates both to the road and cemetery, coming and going. The track can traversed in fine weather only. Access in wet weather is not recommended.
The Cemetery is owned and managed by Singleton All Saints Anglican Parish and maintained by working bees by local parishioners and family members on a voluntary basis. While still in use by the local community, this is a bush cemetery. Visitors should exercise care on the uneven ground and wear suitable clothing and protective shoes. Watch out for snakes!
For information one may contact the Rector at All Saints Church given above or by phone, within Australia: 02 65711414, Overseas: +61 2 65711414, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
My family and I walked and photographed the majority of headstones in the cemetery in January 2005. This has been supplemented by information provided by the Parish (entries marked *). The original church, burial records and some of the original markers were destroyed in a bush fire. So there are an unknown number of unmarked graves.
