One Saturday night in 1964 as a junior doctor, Michael Cousins saw two critically burned boys at a Sydney hospital begging for help.

There is a growing interest in information for genealogical research. In response to this, Pittwater Council developed a web-based search tool which will allow relatives and friends to search for those interred at the cemetery. This search function has become part of what the new council offers and is available online at: mona-vale-cemetery/deceased-search
In October 2018 the Northern Beaches Council, in association with the NSW Government’s Heritage Near Me program and the Manly Warringah and Pittwater Historical Society, announced the launch of a self-guided history tour of heritage-rich Mona Vale Cemetery. The tour can be accessed on Council’s website using a smart phone or iPad, taking participants on a two-hour stroll through this historic cemetery.
The tour profiles almost 30 local identities including author and playwright Morris West (known for The Shoes of the Fisherman and other works), pioneer James Booth, early 20th Century photographer Euphemia Baker who was also the first Australian woman to become a Baha’i, Arthur Dawson Clark, an early President of Narrabeen RSL, and Margaret Vaile, Editor of the Sydney Morning Herald women's pages in the 1960s and Inaugural President of the Zonta Club of Northern Beaches in 1974. A number of prominent people who passed away since 2005 also feature in the tour, including the much-loved teacher, community activist, poet and Pittwater Mayor, the late Harvey Rose OAM.
Council has also produced a booklet to aid your investigations, downloadable as a PDF as 'Mona Vale Cemetery Historical Tour 1905 - 2005 (and beyond) Presented by the Manly, Warringah and Pittwater Historical Society' at: mona-vale-cemetery-historical-tour.pdf
This Mona Vale Cemetery Tour is also available as an Online Tour you can take which may inspire further investigations into the lives of these amazing people. Simply click on the markers and the information will come up. That can be accessed via: northernbeaches/cemeteries/tours
The Council also has regular tours which may be resumed when it is possible to offer these post stay-at-home safety measures. Either way, for those who have an interest in local history, Mona Vale Cemetery provides an end point for your investigations or commencement place for your investigations.
