Old Cemetery

Old Cemetery Search

The Creswick "Old" Cemetery was in operation possibly between 1851 until December 1858 when the Clunes road cemetery was officially opened. Often referred to as the "Chinese Cemetery" this site was used by the everyone to bury their loved ones.

This list is an ongoing project as there was no register held at this cemetery as it was never a Gazzetted Cemetery. The list is alphabetical and there are just over 400 names. Please contact the Secretary if you have any other names for this list.
