Cessnock Cemetery

Went to download some more photographs from my recent visit to Castebrook Memorial Gardens, St Bartholomew's and Castle Hill on Thursday and found these ones from Cessnock Cemetery unsorted. So, here is a taster of the ones from this cemetery situated right in the heart of the Hunter. Have to say that I was more impressed by the cemetery than the region in general - but this may have been due to my poor mood that the poor variety of sites to see.

The little history I found of Cessnock Cemetery include....

"Cessnock Cemetery is closed to new burials due to the high number of unmarked graves. Plots reserved prior to 1999 will be honoured." (Cessnock City Council)

Also on the Cessnock City council there was a few links to Cemetery related items including:

Grave Digger - specifications about Grave digging and what is involved....interesting...

Flaking angel 


The detail on the wings of this angel are impressive
