Charters Towers Cemetery Listings

Charters Towers is inland from Townsville, west and south, and on the main route across to Mt. Isa. It is a picturesque town, with many buildings still as they were in the days of the gold rush, although today the mines are much farther out of town, and the area is probably better known for cattle and for the annual Country and Western festival.

In its mining hey-day it was the largest town in Northern Queensland, and very conscious of the fact, so much so that its inhabitants fondly called it 'The World'. This name is proudly displayed above the town even today.

The pioneer cemetery is on the SE side of town, a brown slab of pebbly ground the size of a large football field. Many of the interments here were deaths occurring in the mines of the day. The newer (and current) cemetery is on the road to The Lynd, on the north side of town.

It should be noted here that while we completed the Pioneer cemetery records alone, the major part of the new cemetery listings are the dedicated work of Cherylle Hamilton, June Norman and Lynn Wallis. It is their wonderfully presented booklet that has been used for base data in this case, along with our own.
