Broken Hill Lane Street Cemetery

 

The first Broken Hill Cemetery was located in Lane Street, which is now the site of the Algate

House Children’s Home. The cemetery was the first in Broken Hill c1886 until 1889 when the current cemetery in Rakow Street was established.

The larger cemetery may well have been a necessity due to the typhoid epidemic of 1888 which claimed some 123 lives during that year.  It is

uncertain how many headstones were erected in the old cemetery.

 

This list was supplied to me some years ago. I do not know if this is the total number of persons that were interred there or to the correctness

of the information supplied below.

There were some obvious errors in a few of the surnames. Some I have edited and others were

cross-checked  to the NSW death indexes and the variation noted.   .
