Event description

Description

Mays Hill Cemetery began as two cemeteries in the late 1830s to serve the growing number of Presbyterians and Baptists living in the Parramatta area.

It later became known as the Western Road Cemetery and is the final resting place for many people who lived in the area that is now the western section of Cumberland Council.

Mays Hill Cemetery was overgrown and in a badly neglected state by 1995 when the Friends of Mays Hill group formed to take on the challenge of rescuing and restoring the graves.

Come and hear more about the story of Mays Hill Cemetery at Merrylands Library on Wednesday 6th September from 1pm.
