Camden General Cemetery is located on the corner of Cawdor and Burragorang Roads, Camden, and was established in the late 1800’s.
The cemetery, which is on Crown Lands and managed by Council, currently provides for approximately 100 burials per year. The cemetery consists of plots in mown lawn areas separated into a number of religious denominations, including:
Anglican/Church of England
The cemetery also contains the Camden War Veterans Cemetery, which consists of 17 graves and a Columbarium (Niche) Wall which is at capacity.
Camden General Cemetery Masterplan
On 26 August 2014, Council resolved to endorse the Camden General Cemetery Masterplan which seeks to maintain the semi-rural character of the cemetery and the existing general layout whilst improving maintenance and other facilities for visitors and providing a wider range of options for burial and memorials.
When fully implemented, the masterplan will facilitate 5,810 burial plots in clearly defined sections and provide an additional 4,608 other memorial options including additional columbarium walls, Family Rose Garden, Memorial Tree and Children’s Memorial Garden.
Funding has been allocated by Council to commence the implementation of the Masterplan, with initial works to focus on construction of new columbarium walls, a toilet facility and maintenance area. It is expected that these works will commence in 2016.
For more information about the Masterplan please contact Council on 4654 7777.
Burial rights for Camden General Cemetery can be purchased from Council’s Customer Service Counter at Camden or Narellan Administration Centres. Please contact Council on 4654 7777 to find out which office the Cemetery Officer is available on that day. Also please note that there is no office located at the Cemetery.
A burial right is a right to bury in a cemetery. This is not the purchase of an actual piece of land.
Headstones & Monuments
Council requires that all monuments must be installed by a monumental stone mason and be approved by Council in addition to having the consent of the Right of Burial holder or his or her next of kin.
NOTE: Funeral arrangements need to be organised through the family’s preferred Funeral Director who are also responsible for arranging the grave digging service. There is a separate charge for this service which is payable directly to the Funeral Director.
