Tooleybuc Cemetery

Yanga Way, Tooleybuc NSW 2710


History

The former Wakool Shire Council took over management of the Tooleybuc Cemetery in 1967 with the first interments taking place over a century ago.

The Tooleybuc Cemetery consists of three religious sections, these being Anglican (also known as Church of England), Uniting (Presbyterian and Methodist) and Roman Catholic, as well as a General Section, allowing both burials and cremated remains. There is also an unmarked grave monument which has been erected to recognise those graves that remain unmarked (pictured).

To date, there has been approximately 160 interments, with the oldest recorded burial dating back to the 1870’s. Unfortunately due to a mouse plague in the 1930s, the Tooleybuc Cemetery records were destroyed and the Deniliquin Family History Group with the assistance of the former Wakool Shire Council, has since indexed the Tooleybuc Cemetery.
