To reach the cemetery, exit the Pacific highway, about 16km south of Tweed Heads, or about 13 km, north of Murwillumbah, travel 3km, & turn right to cross the river, and right again, twice, to follow the river bank south.

This historic cemetery was rescued from the enveloping rain forest in 1993. Original rain forest species were replanted, including the Bird Wing vine, necessary in the breeding cycle of the endangered Richmond River Bird Wing butterfly.

The team also built access paths, seats and rest areas. The information for the above summary, and the list that follows, were supplied in May, 1998, by the Tweed Shire Council, for records between 1883-1947.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
