About Cemetery Station No 3 Rookwood

This is the second station opened in Rookwood Cemetery and was first known as Mortuary Terminus. It was opened on 26 May 1897.

The name was changed from Mortuary Terminus on 26 July 1897 to Cemetery Station No. 3 on 15 June 1908. The station was closed on 29 December 1948. The station was originally the terminus until the line was again extended to Mortuary Station Number 4 in 1908.

The station did have a permanent building which had been the waiting room to Mortuary Station No 1. The station was originally the terminus until the line was again extended to Cemetery Station Number 4 in 1908.
