Watsonville Cemetery
Mareeba Shire, Queensland, Australia

Submitted by Leighann Mansfield, Apr 12, 2008, last edited Apr 28, 2008 [leighannmansfield@bigpond.com]. Total records = 91.

Watsonville Cemetery is located 16km northwest of Herberton on the Petford Road, directly off the main highway to Irvinebank.

Watsonville was named after Alexander Watson, an old Palmer pioneer. The town of Watsonville was established in 1882. Prior names include 'Great Western' & 'Tinaroo" for the area. The Post Office existed from 1881 until 1963. Over the next 20 years the town boasted a population of approximately 250 people and dwindled to 10 in 1969.

Watsonville Cemetery is now owned and maintained by the Mareeba Shire Council, which is a part of the larger Tablelands Shire following the Shire amalgamations in March 2008.

I have transcribed this list from all visable headstones found when I visited and walked this cemetery in January 2007. I also compared these with a list provided me by the shire.
