[Reference: the History of Burials in the South Pine Rivers Shire (by Melva A Welch)]
Two cemetery reserves were gazetted in the parish of Bunya in the same year. Bunya Cemetery gazetted in Dec 1873 was described as being near Cache's Crossing. The other reserve gazetted in March 1873 was described as being at Chinaman's Creek. For over 100 years, Bunya Cemetery received no maintenance because trustees had been appointed from 1879 under "mistaken identity". The 1879 appointed Trustees who liven close to Chinaman's Creek, buried their family members and took care of those grounds ...
sixteen definite burials in Bunya Cemetery have been discovered.
