Cloncurry Lawn Cemetery
The Cloncurry Lawn Cemetery is located next to the Cloncurry Cemetery, on the corner of Sir Hudson Fysh Drive, Alice Street and Henry Street. Graves in the lawn cemetery are dated from 1968 until the present day. All graves in the lawn cemetery face East-West and run parallel in two portions. All plaques are placed on cement headstones which are now inclined and can be purchased from Council to manage the elements' corrosive nature to the plaques. The fees and charges are listed below.
Council wishes to advise that inclined headstones with flower positioning will be used when purchasing new plaques for the cemetery.
