Uncover the history of Cookernup and its first settlers.

The Cemetery also has several burial options available. Please contact the Shire of Harvey for information.



The town site of Cookernup was gazetted in August 1894. Less than two years later, in 1896, this reserve, originally of 9 acres, was established as a cemetery, and in 1898, they formed a cemetery board to manage the site.

As it was one of the few cemeteries in the region, many people from the surrounding districts were buried at Cookernup, including many prominent members of the Logue family.

The first block on 10 acres at Cookernup was taken up by Joseph Logue in 1854 and old maps show several 40-acre blocks, all close to water as being taken up in his name, including Moojelup Farm.

The cemetery is divided into two portions, Roman Catholic and Church of England and a small portion allocated for military purposes. However, only two returned servicemen were buried there.

In 2000, the size of the cemetery was reduced to approximately three hectares.

The cemetery continues to be used for burials.
