This was our first visit of the 2013 season. The cemetery is well maintained and despite being situated in a major town it was surprisingly quiet. The chapel and ground was consecrated May 23rd 1850 and the cemetery was officially opened June 10th 1850.
Albert Willits was a policeman "shot in the execution of his duty" in 1925.
