Shire of Meekatharra's Cemetery

Meekatharra, a town in Western Australia's Murchison region, derives its name from the Yamatji word meaning "place of little water." The town is home to the Meekatharra Cemetery, originally established in the early 1900s but closed in May 1907 due to its unsuitability next to mining operations.  We have a number of other cemeteries within the jurisdiction of the Shire, which we are putting efforts in gathering information so we can share this to the rest of the community and give the chance to connect with their loved ones that have passed.
