39 Commonwealth War Graves
The cemetery has been laid out in denominational areas.
A large number of graves are only marked by a grave marker.

The Wooroloo Cemetery was gazetted on 13th July 1906. The names found in Wooroloo Cemetery are quite broad in their ethnic mix, such as Chinese, Japanese, Yugoslavian, German, English, Irish, Scottish, as well as Aboriginal. The earliest burials date from 1915, when the cemetery was under the control of the nearby Wooroloo Sanatorium. The sanatorium treated patients with a range of pulmonary diseases, such as tuberculosis (TB) and a few leprosy patients. The sanitorium ceased to be the only TB centre in 1960 and TB ceased to be a fatal illness after the discovery of Streptomycin in 1944. Prior to this time, rest, fresh air and good food were the only hope for TB patients. Many of the patients at the Sanatorium were miners whose lungs had become infected while working on the various goldfields. Other graves are linked to return servicemen. Women and younger persons were also among the patients. The majority of the graves associated with the Sanatorium are mounds identified simply by a cast iron marker bearing the plot number.
