Tips for searching

You can enter any part of the cemetery name in the search box, as long as it is 3 characters. To make it easier I have used Anglican for Church of England, C/E, CofE, or Anglican, and Catholic for R/C; for Mount or Mt I've used Mount, but for Saint or St, I've used St, except when the word is Saints, such as in All Saints.

The search on this page searches all the entries in my index for the Australian Capital Territory.

The following sites have not been included in this index:
FamilySearch I recommend searching here first. The Australia Deaths and Burials, 1816-1980 collection includes some cemetery records, such as Barrabool Hills (Highton) in Victoria and Karrakatta in Western Australia, that have more details than can be found in other records online. FamilySearch also has indexes for both:
Find a Grave and
BillionGraves

For war deaths
Commonwealth War Graves Commission

For Jewish burials
Australian Jewish Historical Society

A few cemeteries don't have online data, but the records can be found using the ICemetery app for Androids and IPhones. So far the only cemeteries for Australia available on the app are Mona Vale, South Head and Waverley cemeteries, which are all from New South Wales.

If you are unable to find the cemetery you are looking for, or you are unable to find records for the person you're looking for, the Australian Cemeteries website has an alphabetical index of cemeteries in each state, which may provide additional details about where to find information for the cemetery.
The information may be on a subscription site. I have set up a separate page Subscription Sites with details about the collections held on the three main subscription sites.
