Sign at Half Moon Farm Cemetery

Above: Information sign at Half Moon Farm Cemetery.

Information sign reads:

"Half Moon Farm Cemetery documents the burial place of some of the earliest settlers on the Hawkesbury. All of the monuments in the cemetery predate the 1856 Civil Register and may be the only record of the individuals concerned. The cemetery which incorporates monuments featuring unusual designs and naive scripts dates entirely to the nineteenth century.

The cemetery conservation works were jointly funded by Hawkesbury City Council and the New South Wales Heritage Assistance Programe."
