Whroo Cemetery Obituaries

Gold was discovered at what became Whroo in late 1853.

The present cemetery was not formally reserved until 1860.

Burials between these years may have been on the land now occupied by the cemetery, or in other locations nearby.

Isolated bush graves have been identified informally, but lost again as the elements washed down the mounds of earth and vegetation grew.

Not all deaths and burials were reported in newspapers.

Only a small number of obituaries were published.

Obituaries tell something of the life and times of the deceased person, and may be of interest to their descendants and others.

Displayed here are reports and obituaries found by researcher and historian Alan McLean who always welcomes inquiries from members of the public.

He also appreciates new information about the deceased, and new obituaries and death notices which have so far escaped his research.

There are over 150 obituaries listed below.
