22. Wentworth Cemetery

West Street Wentworth

Many of the district’s pioneers are buried at the Wentworth Cemetery including several well-known businessmen including William Gunn and Captain John Egge, a Chinese Riverboat Captain. The occupants have not always rested easily here, as the front fence and some of the graves were moved back to allow room for a road and the building of Lock 10. During floods the cemetery was impossible to get to and funerals had to be boated in. Wentworth Library can supply information on gravesites and also can help with your genealogy queries. There’s also a self-guided tour available.
