About Northcote Cemetery
The cemetery has been closed since 1908 except to holders of right of burial, with the last burial taking place in 1971.
It is believed there are more than 1,500 people buried in the tiny cemetery, but there are only approximately 200 headstones. Given its long history, many burial records of the cemetery no longer exist. Some records have, however, been reconstructed using old receipt books and plans of the site.
Today this historic site is cared for by GMCT staff with help from the Kew Neighbourhood Learning Centre, which provides practical work experience for young people with disabilities.
There are no new memorial options available at Northcote Cemetery.
