Lennonville (Warramboo) Cemeteries

Lonely Graves Main Page

An old mines map shows two cemeteries at Lennonville. One is west of the Great Northern Highway (Warramboo) and  has a fence around it with one headstone. The other cemetery is shown east of the road. I have walked to this area, but there are no visible markings whatsoever. There are apparently 13 graves on this site.


Name Date of Death Other Information
Batty, Jean 18/6/1908 Aged 42
Bettini, Giacomo 23/1/1901 He became lost in the bush and died of thirst.
Campbell, Alexander 26/4/1910 Aged 4. Died of diptheria.
Hartrick, Mabel 28/9/1907 Aged 33.
McGee, Kathleen Agnes 5/2/1908 Aged 3 weeks.

This is the list of names in the unmarked cemetery on the eastern side of the Great Northern Highway. As I was compiling this list I was struck by the tragedy of how many children were buried there, in fact most of those were just babies and the deaths occured over a relatively small period of time.  With the exception of the two miners, this is a cemetery of babies. The Campbell's lost three children at Lennonville between 1905 and 1910.
