[edit] Description

The area is pleasantly landscaped with well kept lawns, various trees and unobtrusive fencing. The cemetery was established in 1879. The average burial rate over the last four years was 7 per year.

The total cemetery area is approximately 40,055 m2 of which 745 m2 is used for graves, while 2,300 m2 is available as lawn. Water is supplied but there is inadequate seating. Headstones are placed on strip plinths, which add to the overall landscape value. The cemetery is easily accessed from Kimberley Road.
