Linden Cemetery  S 29° 17.32, E 122° 25.28

The first burial was in 1898 when the cemetery was gazetted and it was not until 1911 that the second occurred.

In 1915 the local residents wrote to the Dept of Works to ask “ we are enquiring of you as the best possible way to secure a small grant to erect a fence around the Linden burial ground in which there are three bodied buried.  It is,  at the moment, unprotected from wild dogs, of which there are many in this part of the country, and also of travellers who may pass over in their conveyances without know it.
