Walkerville Wesleyan Cemetery, South Australia

Walkerville Wesleyan Cemetery

The Friends of the Walkerville Wesleyan Cemetery have produced a very interesting Cemetery Guide in which they state that it provides a picture of early settler society and contains a social record of the activities of the local community. Among the interred are prominent settlers together with tradesmen.....and children. A reflection of the state of health in the 1850s to 1870s is very poignant with over 400 children under one year of age buried in the cemetery. Out of the 3785 persons buried, a shocking two thirds, that is more than 2500, are children.


Below are SOME of the headstones of the Walkerville Wesleyan Cemetery. 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.
