Additional Cemetery Information

Apoinga Cemetery
Apoinga Cemetery is located on an un-named road off of Mollers Gap Road, Apoinga. Council holds a partial record of burials within the cemetery. A catalogue of memorials located within Apoinga Cemetery was undertaken in 2015. A cemetery map and headstone photos can be viewed by clicking here.

Bundey Cemetery
Bundey Cemetery is located off of Bundey Church Road in the Hundred of Bundey. The Cemetery is most easily accessed via Bower Boundary Road (off of the Goyder Highway between Burra and Morgan). While Council does not hold the original records for the Cemetery, a catalogue of memorials located within the Bundey Cemetery was undertaken in 2015. A cemetery map and headstone photos can be viewed by clicking here.

Burra Cemetery
A copy of the Burra Cemetery Records are held at the Burra Community Library, Bridge Terrace, Burra. Some photographs of headstones located in the Burra Cemetery are available by using the online cemetery records.

Burra Kooringa (Old) Cemetery
The Original "First Kooringa Cemetery"- It is impossible to know the exact numbers buried in this cemetery, nor how many people are missing from the records. Based on sources available the names stored on this website under this Cemetery are of the men, women and children known to have died in Kooringa, the Burra Creek dugouts or while working for the Burra Burra Mine between 1845 and May 1850. It is reasonable to conclue that many of them rest here, in the First Kooringa Cemetery. In 1899 a memorial was erected in their honour and it is still visible today. 

Booborowie Cemetery
A project undertaken by Booborowie Primary School has greatly enhanced our online information for graves at the Booborowie cemetery. With the assistance of community members and a grant through the Commonwealth History Project, all the headstones were photographed and the inscriptions transcribed and this information made available to Council and has been added to the Cemetery Search database. The students also produced a short introduction to the Cemetery and recorded how they went about preparing for and completing the project, both of which can be viewd by clicking on the links below.
