Evandale Catholic Cemetery

(Note: many of these graves have smashed headstones & fences, with can be distressing for some people, Also the puddles after the rain exaggerate the vandalised effect.)

  1. Gerald Cedric Smith is my late husbands Great Uncle.
    I am one of a very small group trying to maintain the cemetery. We have over the past couple of years cut down & poisoned Hawthorn bushes, weeded and are at this time working with Northern Midlands Council to have the drainage problem corrected. There was a Blue stone Celtic cross for Alban Roper which was damaged / has now been repaired and once drainage has been completed the grave will be repaired and the cross reinstalled. We hope to hold a ceremony at this time. We are also working on the idea of a peace garden with shrubs and seating. If you would like to attend please contact myself.
