|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
There is an information board detailing a few of the headstones clearly visible in the flower beds.
There will be many unmarked graves.
Fairfield graveyard has had over 78 people buried on its land from 1851.
The first person to be laid to rest is unknown, as many of the earlier gravestones are damaged, faded or unmarked and, in some cases, have been relocated to other cemeteries.
Damaged graves were relocated to the Rhododendron Dell in August of I948, but some more recently damaged headstones, whether by time and mother nature or vandalism, still remain in Fairfield.
