Angaston Historic Cemetery, South Australia

Angaston Historic Cemetery.


Angaston's first cemetery, established on an acre of land bought from G.F. Angas for 10 shillings, was used from 1847 until 1869. According to the records 223 people were buried here but only a few marked plots remain. The cemetery was run as a private concern by trustees. It was enclosed by a stone wall paid for by subscriptions and divided into 80 plots.

Among some of the first to be buried were William Denithorne age 26 who died on 3 May 1847 and Thomas Tweedy age 35 who died on 4 December 1847. In 1848 William Argent age 33 was buried and Jane McIntyre who was only 2 days old died on 2 December 1848. John Rowe, age 6 months died on 26 January 1849 and Emma Plush age 9 months died on 27 December 1849.

Below are SOME of the headstones of the Angaston 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.
