Additional Cemetery Information
Apoinga Cemetery is located on an un-named road off of Mollers Gap Road, Apoinga. Council holds a partial record of burials within the cemetery. A catalogue of memorials located within Apoinga Cemetery was undertaken in 2015. A cemetery map and headstone photos can be viewed by clicking here.
Bundey Cemetery is located off of Bundey Church Road in the Hundred of Bundey. The Cemetery is most easily accessed via Bower Boundary Road (off of the Goyder Highway between Burra and Morgan).

A copy of the Burra Cemetery Records are held at the Burra Community Library, Bridge Terrace, Burra. Some photographs of headstones located in the Burra Cemetery are available by using the online cemetery records.
A project undertaken by Booborowie Primary School has greatly enhanced our online information for graves at the Booborowie cemetery. With the assistance of community members and a grant through the Commonwealth History Project, all the headstones were photographed and the inscriptions transcribed and this information made available to Council and has been added to the Cemetery Search database. The students also produced a short introduction to the Cemetery and recorded how they went about preparing for and completing the project, both of which can be viewd by clicking on the links below.
Their efforts are to be commended and Council is delighted to be able to share such a valuable social history resource.
Council's online cemetery records also includes records and headstone photos of the Emu Downs Cemetery which is maintained by the Russian Molokan Spiritual Christian Leapers & Jumpers Cemetery Inc. The Emu Downs Cemetery is located off of Kotz Road, Emu Downs.

The Cemetery records can also be accessed through the Search Facility below. Apart from seaching for records at any of the 7 Goyder cemeteries listed above, a number of other Councils have also placed their cemetery records online and these too can be searched from the Goyder website.
Please note :
1. The Cemetery Records contain details of both burials and plots that, at this stage, have only been leased.
2. Take care with the dates - they will appear in either year-month-day or day-month-year format.
Good luck with your search!
