Address: Clermont-Rubyvale Road, Copperfield 4721 QLD
Copperfield, a locality near Clermont, was once a substantial town that grew up around Queensland's first copper mine. Copperfield Cemetery was established in the 1860s and appears to have been in general use until the early years of the 20th century. Since then, intermittent burials have taken place, probably only of relatives and descendants of those buried here in earlier years.
Peter and Karen Patterson-Kane visited Copperfield Cemetery in April 2011 and experienced heavy rain while there. However, they made digital images of the few remaining inscriptions and of the plaques on the memorial wall which lists all known burials on this site, of which there are 310. Peter says that the cemetery is maintained in good order by Council.
Peter and Karen's images may be downloaded from the list of inscriptions for this cemetery. In compiling that list, reference has been made to the Queensland indices of births, deaths and marriages for additional information.
