Castlereagh Cemetery, Castlereagh, NSW, Australia

Notes: Castlereagh Cemetery is situated on the northern corner of Church Lane and Wilchard Road at Castlereagh. The only area to show that people are buried there is the two acres classed as the Anglican section of the original forty acre site put aside for the Castlereagh Cemetery . Originally Governor Macquarie decreed that every cemetery would be enclosed by a post and rail fence (a gate has recently been added to this). The cemetery is all that is left of the original five towns that Governor Macquarie laid out in 1810. The Nepean River Flats at Birds Eye Corner were unofficially settled by families which included the Russells, Randalls, Ropes, Colless', Fields, Collits', Fredericks, Morns, Lees, Lewis' and McCarthys, around the 1800 many of these properties were ratified by grants by Governor King between 1803 and 1806. Please note there are NO toilets or water facilities available
