Christ Church Cathedral Cemetery

Also known as Cathedral Park, the Christ Church Cathedral Cemetery was the first cemetery in Newcastle, and was managed by the Anglican Church. It is estimated that at capacity, the cemetery held 3,300 graves. The land was acquired by the City of Newcastle in 1966. Work on the site to convert the cemetery from burial ground to parkland commenced in 1972. Nearly 100 headstones were moved from the site of their associated burial and placed in rows on the east boundary of the park. Sadly, moving the headstones led to their deterioration and loss of association with the site of burial.
