History and Facts

Did you know …

Macquarie Park Cemetery and Crematorium is situated on 59 hectares of Crown land owned by the New South Wales Government, administered by the Department of Primary Industries and managed by successive Boards of Trustees as a not-for-profit community service in perpetuity since the first burial within the grounds in 1922. The original name was the Northern Suburbs General Cemetery. The name was changed in 2004 with the introduction of the chapels and crematorium.

There are many notable people buried in our cemetery, just to name a few – William (Billy) Hughes, Johnny O’Keefe and Flora MacKillop. If you would like to hear more, join one of our Historic Walking Tours. Please contact us for the next tour date.
