After the great success of the Tallimba Cemetery our devoted volunteers of The Wyalong District Family History Group along with the Bland Shire Council and residents of "The Gog" plan to clean up the cemetery, place a story board, build a monumental wall and place 47 plaques of the known people buried in the cemetery.
People were buried here from 1896, before the official allotment of a gazetted area was made in 1898 and now some of those buried (about 6 persons) are on the outside fence of the cemetery. The early burials may have been on a track before the alignment of a road running North and South was formed. There is a one chain wide area from the fence to around the outer portions which are Church of England, Roman Catholic, Presbyterian, Wesleyan and Other denominations.
We are planning to clear out the scrub, remove the dead trees, try to mark out the denominations, and walkways, clean up around the graves and record what is known of each person and their family. If you would like to help or have any questions please feel free to contact us.
We are of course looking for any information about anyone who is buried in this small cemetery. If you have any ancestor buried there, we would be grateful if you could please let the secretary know. It would be very sad to omit someone from our project.
