Mareeba Pioneer Cemetery appears to have been established shortly before the turn of the 19th century. It contains inscriptions that range from 1896 to 2007. Approximately two-thirds of the burials here are unmarked.
Inside a gazebo in the cemetery grounds is mounted an honour roll of over 1700 names of persons known to have been buried on this site or hereabouts but whose graves cannot now be identified. In what must have been a massive project, information for the honour roll was gathered from many sources including the records of earlier Councils, Queensland death registrations, Queensland State Archives, funeral director records, electoral rolls and newspaper obituaries. The compilers are to be congratulated for their fine achievement in creating such a valuable historical record.
Peter and Karen Patterson-Kane visited the cemetery during November 2009 and made digital images and notes of every visible inscription. They found the grounds in good condition and the monuments mostly erect, although some had become difficult to read through the effluxion of time. Peter and Karen compiled the list of all inscriptions for this cemetery from their images and notes and with reference to the Queensland births, deaths and marriages online search facility and to the Australian War Memorial online military rolls for additional information.
Mareeba Pioneer Cemetery is administered the Tablelands Regional Council. For further information, contact Council at PO Box 573 Atherton Qld 4883; phone: 1300 362 242; email: [email protected]
