Cemeteries

Cemeteries can provide a wealth of information about the history of a region, as well as for private genealogical research.

Main town cemeteries are still in use with headstones from the past eras. There are also smaller historical cemeteries throughout the shire, and these exist wherever smaller settlements commenced. Many have several grave sites, others only one.

You are advised to check through West Wimmera Visitor Information Centres or any of the websites with Victoria's cemetery details regarding access to the following cemeteries, as some are on private property.
