Long Description:
The sign above the cemetery, behind the pipe fencing, declares that the historic cemetery was established c. 1864, though the following excerpt, from the Hawkesbury City Council, cemetery assets PDF document, gives an earlier date.

"This Anglican cemetery dates from the 1830's and contains the graves of a number of Colo pioneers including members of the following families: Blundell, Hulbert, Simmons and Ward. Convict Thomas Roker Gosper [1847] who arrived on the Surprise in 1790 and his wife Mary Anne nee Hipwell [1837] settled in the Colo district and are buried in this cemetery. Of particular interest are the Gill monuments with their naïve and unusual carvings. One young child, Charlot Gill [1842' was killed by a falling tree."
