Shire Cemeteries

Council’s cemeteries are open to the public seven days a week. Animals, other than recognised assistance animals, are not permitted in any of the cemeteries.

If you are researching family history and would like to enquire in person, it would be appreciated if you could contact Council on (02) 6920 5305 to make an appointment before your visit.
