Polson Cemetery
Pt. Vernon, Hervey Bay Shire, Queensland, Australia

The cemetery is situated in Pt. Vernon, at the northern end of Hervey Bay, "The Whale Watch Capital of the World", from August to October. It takes its name from a pioneer, who initially owned the land. Mr Polson, a retired bank manager had spent his last days on the beach observing the activity at the rafting grounds. Mr. Polson died there, and was initially buried on the beach, but was transferred to this site in 1887. The cemetery reserve is quite large.

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.
