[edit] Description

This small cemetery was originally semi-private for members of the family, relatives and farm hands of Birch Hill Station. A central cairn commemorates Captain William Newton Millton who occupied the Okuku country in 1857. On the back wall are two plaques in memory of the men of Birch Hill Station who died in World War One, and in memory of the horses that came from the station.
