There are two historic cemeteries managed by Campbelltown City Council, Athelstone Independent Cemetery and Old Pioneer Cemetery

New Burials & Ashes Memorials

The Old Pioneer Cemetery has burial sites available for purchase if the deceased person has a family association with the Athelstone Primitive Methodist Church congregation and lived the majority of their lives in the Campbelltown City Council area. Please note:

  • There is to be no pre-purchase of sites at the Old Pioneer Cemetery.
  • An associated person (or their spouse) may only purchase one burial site.
  • The consent of the Mayor and the Chief Executive Officer is required for these purchases.

At this time there are no available burial sites available for purchase at Athelstone Independent Cemetery. However, there are ashes memorial positions available on the Columbarium Walls at both cemeteries.

The term of internment rights for both burials and positions on the Columbarium Walls is forty years.
