Eltham Cemetery Walk

Eltham District Historical Society has an upcoming heritage walk of interest.

The Eltham Cemetery is the custodian of more than 150 years of Eltham’s history. Harry Gilliam’s research on the cemetery includes information on Eltham pioneers from those early years, as well as details of interesting and important locals buried there in more recent times.

Harry will lead a further tour of grave sites on Sunday 13th November. It will include many sites not visited on previous cemetery visits.

The tour will start at 2.00 pm. Enter the cemetery from Mt Pleasant Road (Melway Ref. 21 K9) and proceed to the car park near the south western corner. This tour is free and is open to the general public as well as Society members.
