Description

Physical description: Mummell Catholic Cemetery is located on an exposed hilltop in undulating rural countryside across the road from a former church, now a private residence.
Large cypresses are planted along the road boundary. The site is grassed with no grave plantings evident.
A timber picket fence and black painted iron gate with sign "MUMMELL CEMETERY" in the centre encloses the cemetery along the western road boundary. Other boundaries are fenced with star post and wire.
The graves face west toward the church and are in groups (mostly family groups). There are three babies graves in the northeastern corner of the site. The earliest burial identified from the monuments was James McAleer who died 16th December 1898.
