|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Beenak Cemetery was gazetted as a cemetery on 13 December 1878. Some of the century-old graves were placed in an unmade government road which adjoined the cemetery boundary. The unmade road has since been closed and reserved as part of the cemetery.
The early records are sketchy, and the lack of headstones means Trustees are unsure of who are buried in some graves, although all the names are known.
Beenak Cemetery is located on the northern side of Beenak Road near its junction with Old Beenak Road.
It is administered by the Beenak Cemetery Trust for the Cardinia Shire Council. For further information, contact the Secretary, Beenak Cemetery Trust, 35 Willis Rd, Hoddles Creek VIC 3139.
