Christ Church Cathedral Cemetery
Also known as: Cathedral Park
Newcastle
Newcastle City
New South Wales  Australia

Cemetery notes and/or description:
The Christ Church Cathedral Cemetery was the first cemetery in Newcastle, and was managed by the Anglican Church. It is estimated that at capacity, the cemetery held 3,300 graves. The land was aqquired by the City of Newcastle in 1966. Work on the site to convert the cemetery from burial ground to parkland commenced in 1972. Nearly 100 headstones were moved from the site of their associated burial and pclaced in rows on the east boundary of the park. Sadly, moving the headstones led to their derioration and loss of association with the site of burial.
