Cemetery notes and/or description:
Barbadoes Street Cemetery (once known as the Christchurch cemetery) is the final resting place of many of Christchurch's early leading citizens who became known as the "Canterbury Pilgrims"

This is the city's oldest cemetery - it first opened in 1851 and is near the Avon river and within a short distance from Cathedral Square
The cemetery itself is divided by Barbadoes Street separating the Anglican (Church of England) section, on the eastern side, from the Roman Catholic and Dissenters (others) section on the west.
The history of the cemetery is the history of early Christchurch. The stories of its beginnings and the people buried there paint a rich and varied panorama of the life lived in 19th century and into last century.

The Barbadoes Street Cemetery Preservation Society have been active in this cemetery for many years undertaking headstone restoration work.
