Old Cemetery

The Old Cemetery is in Drummond street on the left as you head towards Calembeen Park, it is fenced and has trees and shrubs along with a large rock that had a plaque and the names of those who were Trustees at the time of the cemetery being turned into a Pioneer Park. This has been removed and over the next few months we hope to replace it with the names of all those buried at this site. 

October 13 1950 the Creswick Advertiser reported that the sexton, Mr. Ellis found only two headstones intact at the old cemetery, they read: “Sacred to the memory of William H. Taylor who died April 1855. Aged 13 months.” and “Erected by John Bowden to the memory of his beloved uncle Edward Bowden, late of Rednith, Cornwall, who was accidentally killed by the falling in of a drive on the 19th November, 1854, Aged 34 years.”
