New South Wales Cemeteries

The Family History Library has transcriptions for many New South Wales cemeteries. Cemetery records often include birth, marriage, and death information. They sometimes provide clues about military service, religion, or membership in an organization. These records are useful in identifying children who died young or women who were not recorded in family or government documents. They are helpful in establishing family relationships and locating family members.
