Established in 1890, facing Mt Sugarloaf, and set amongst native bushland, this cemetery is very popular with family historians and was the first established general cemetery in the Lake Macquarie area, having no specific religious denominations.
Plot burials in West Wallsend Cemetery are only available for existing reservations.
Ashes can be interred (buried) in family graves by a monumental mason, gravedigger or organised through a Funeral Director.
Ashes can also be installed in the niche wall with a granite plaque or in the memorial gardens, with a granite plinth.
Locked gates are installed at this cemetery to prevent further erosion of the grounds caused by vehicular access.
During 2022, we will be undertaking remediation works at West Wallsend Cemetery. Find out more.

This cemetery has many examples of marble and granite heritage headstones from the late 1800s to this day. Generations of pioneer West Wallsend Colliery families are buried in the cemetery.
On the left side of the cemetery, as you walk through the gate, you will find a memorial for the burials of the unmarked gravesites for local infants and babies.
