As the monument area is quite old, not all monuments are numbered. Numbering was introduced in the late 1900s. Council recommends you visit the cemetery during office hours for assistance and directions. Alternatively, contact the office by email to request a map. State the grave location detail, including the name of the deceased.
Not all graves have plaques or headstones. Keep this in mind when trying to locate a specific grave by number.
