[edit] History

The first recorded entry in the cemetery book is for 9th October 1874, however in August 1867, a meeting of residents was held to protest about the area being in a disgraceful condition. Those present subscribed twenty pounds for a fence to be erected, and offered to undertake the necessary work. The Provincial Government offered to pay half the cost.
