Tewantin Cemetery is 16 km east from Cooroy, on the Cooroy-Tewantin Rd.
One stone proclaims Mary Hall, who died 24th Jun 1876 to be the first, dying for the honour, no doubt. However, there is a very worn sandstone monument for a child, Isabella Louisa Clark 13-4-1876. It has become undecipherable over the last two years. The death indexes reveal she was the daughter of Stephen Clark & Jane Cumming.

The cemetery is situated in a clearing on the edge of scrub country. Unique to this cemetery is the Memorial Bush Garden. It is a series of winding gravel pathways, lined by knee-high cement markers, similar to the old milestones. The Plaques, about 20cm by 15 cm are fixed to the lectern tops of these markers. Yes, it is in the bush.

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.
