Lilyvale burials

The following information was drawn from the public record (https://www.familyhistory.bdm.qld.gov.au/) as well as a privately compiled document titled Gogango District Cemeteries Burials and Monumental Descriptions.

The late Jim Dobbs, who farmed at Boolburra west of Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia, gave me the document. Where I've been able to identify the location of cemeteries, I have included a map reference.

The information may be useful to family researchers but comes with the warning that there may be errors and omissions as well as incomplete details. In some cases I have added newspaper references that support burial details.
