Farina Cemetery

The Farina Cemetery is located around 2km to the North-West of the Farina township, and was used from around 1883 to 1972. It is located on Section 89 within the suburban area of Farina, comprising 5 acres and granted on the 7th July 1887. The land was granted under the Crown Lands Act 1886 to a group of men living at Farina, and it is likely that they formed the initial committee of management for the Cemetery. These men were Frank Wilkinson (Clerk), Ronald Ewan McDonald (Storekeeper), John Napier (Storekeeper), George Tyler White (Publican) and John James Doig (Blacksmith). A copy of the information board located at the Cemetery can be viewed here.

The following 244 people listed are either known to be buried in the Cemetery or are from Farina and their dates of death are known.
