Town of Walkerville

Draft Cemetery and Memorials Policy

The Wesleyan Church opened the Walkerville Cemetery in 1849. The Cemetery has historical significance as the resting place of many of the district’s pioneers and respected citizens, as well as having “high aesthetic and memorial value as a representative example of an early village cemetery of the 1840s and 1850s”.

This draft Policy sets out Council’s objectives for the ongoing management of the Wesleyan Cemetery in accordance with the Burial and Cremation Act 2013.

The community is now invited to comment on the draft policy

Feedback to be submitted in writing by 5pm, Friday 13 September 2019.
