Cemeteries

Williams has two cemeteries, at Williams and Marling. The current Williams Cemetery is located some 2kms south east of the town and was commissioned in 1914.

The Marling Cemetery, formerly a private cemetery provided by the Cowcher family, is located 20kms west of Williams on the Pinjarra-Williams Road.

Cemetery records for both cemeteries can be viewed at the Council Office.

The fees and charges associated with the Williams and Marling Cemeteries are included in our Schedule of Fees and Charges, available via the quick-link to the left of this page.

Niche Walls

The Williams Cemetery offers two choices, a Brick Niche Wall at the front of the Cemetery, and the newer Granite Niche Wall at the back of the Cemetery.
