A Social Ramble though the Maryborough Cemetery

There are a million stories to be told within our local cemeteries and the Maryborough Cemetery is no exception. This book takes a brief look at some of those stories.

As you ramble through the cemetery, with the four o'clocks in bloom, you will find political figures and local dignitaries beside miners, heroes and extraordinary individuals that have all contributed much to our local history.
Headstones tell tales of tragic accidents, murder, courage, disaster and love.
They identify interesting locals that have been before us and now lay at rest in our cemetery.
Solitary graves and unmarked pegs leave you wondering who lay within.

**This book has been adapted by MFHG from the original booklet by Eileen Courtney.
It includes additional content and photographs as well as a brief history of the Cemetery and of some of those who have gone before us

Copies can be purchased from the Group or at the Central Goldfields Visitor Information Centre
