Halifax


Halifax is located at the mouth of the Herbert River in North Queensland, quite close to the sugar town of Ingham, about 100 km north of Townsville.
The cemetery is quite well maintained, and later burials include a very high incidence of Italian families who came in after 1900 to service the fledgling sugar industry. Their headstones are grand, and the names difficult to decipher, particularly as there is an Italian habit of reversing the order of the names...
For this reason most of the Italian headstones have been left out of this listing.
