Wentworth Cemetery

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Wentworth has some very old burials, dating back to the 1850s. Many of the district’s pioneers are buried at the Wentworth Cemetery including several well know businessmen (William Gunn and John Egge).

The occupants have not always rested easily here, as the front fence and some of the graves were moved back to allow room for a road and the building of Lock 10.

During floods the cemetery was impossible to get to and funerals had to be boated in.

A Cemetery Walking Tour map is available at the Wentworth Visitor Information Centre.
