To the memory of the Pioneers of Southern Cross who paved the way to the Eastern Goldfields. Most of those buried here were young people. Victims of Typhoid Fever. Many deaths prior to 1896 cannot be traced. The original 3'6" gauge railway passed through the cemetery site in 1897.
All available headstones from each section are assembled on this site, together with four from Marvel Loch. Erected on the site of the original Southern Cross cemetery 1891 - 1898 by the Southern Cross Historical Society and the Yilgarn Shire Council.
