About Woronora Cemetery Station

Note: You do not have to look at the shelter shed nearby. You do not need to walk close to any graves. Please be respectful of visitors to the cemetery.

In the early 19th Century, trains were used as funeral transport to Rookwood, Woronora and Sandgate (Newcastle) Cemeteries.

Funeral trains operated on the Illawarra Line from 1900 to a dedicated station within Woronora Cemetery at Sutherland. These trains used the platforms at Sydney Terminal Station rather than Mortuary Station and were available to general commuters.

The Woronora Cemetery branch was a short line opened in 1900, extending from the main line just to the south of Sutherland Station. It crossed over East Parade near the junction of Linden Street and continued curving around to the north west where it finished at the station. It was 740 metres in length.

With the rise of the motor car, funeral trains declined and were eventually ended. The line was never electrified, and in its final years’ service was provided by a CPH rail motor. The line was closed in 1947.

No trace remains today of the branch.
