The Hinchinbrook Shire Council administers and maintains three cemeteries within the Shire. These are the New Ingham Cemetery, Old Ingham Cemetery and Halifax Cemetery.

Generally, all new interments are conducted at the New Ingham and Halifax cemeteries. Above ground – vault interments – are permitted at the Old Ingham Cemetery provided a recent family connection can be shown.

Please be advised that the Halifax Cemetery is currently not conducting inground burials due to water saturation.

There are other privately maintained cemeteries throughout the Shire. The largest of these being the Victoria Estate Cemetery this cemetery is fully maintained and administered by Wilmar, for more information regarding the Victoria Estate Cemetery please contact Wilmar here
