Uralla Square / John St
Uralla Old General Cemetery dates from around the late 1850s. Much is made locally of the fact that this cemetery contains the grave of the notorious bushranger, Frederick Wordsworth Ward, known as Captain Thunderbolt. As a tourist attraction, the grounds are maintained in excellent condition by Uralla Shire Council.
Information regarding burials at Uralla Old General Cemetery was initially supplied by Heather Burke. The data was collected for the "Cemeteries/Burials New England Project (2000)" initiated by Professor Iain Davidson and funded by a Research Infrastructure Block Grant, University of New England. The data was collected with the assistance of Arnold Goode (Uralla), Helen Nancarrow and Bruce Cady (Kelly's Plains), Nan Mullen (Wollomombi), Peter Chambers (Saumarez Ponds), David and Beverley Barratt (Tamworth).
In December 2009, Ray Cork made digital images of all visible inscriptions. We are also indebted to Peter Dabelstein who contributed images of several of his family graves in 2007.
The list of inscriptions for this cemetery was compiled from all three sources named above with reference to the NSW indexes of births, deaths and marriages for further information.
A directory of <a href="/docs/246-name-listing.jpg" target=_blank>Name Listing and Grace Locations</a> is now on site.
In Uralla, turn north from the New England Highway into John Street. Uralla Square is at the end of John Street, three blocks from the highway.
This long-closed cemetery is maintained by the Uralla Shire Council. For further information, contact Council at PO Box 106, Uralla NSW 2358; phone 02 6778 5073; email: firstname.lastname@example.org
