Navan Cemetery, South Australia

Navan Cemetery

Navan, a subdivision of section 728 in the Hundred of Gilbert, selected by John Hallett and Joseph Stirling, was named after Navan in Ireland and its cemetery established in 1850. In 1866 the small settlement had a population of over 300 people, a post office, catholic church and school. However after better transport facilities became available the small town rapidly declined


Below are SOME of the headstones of the Navan Cemetery, about 4 km south of Riverton. In an attempt to save as much space as possible and increase the speed of downloading, only part of the stone is displayed. Flinders Ranges Research has a full photograph of each of these, and many others as well.


This chapel was built in 1900 with a donation of 100 by John O'Brien. The altar in the chapel is over his grave.
