Stirling District Cemetery Historic Walk

About the Historical walk

The Stirling District Cemetery was opened as the Stirling East Cemetery in 1879. Before that burials had been made on private property, in the scrub and later in churchyards.

The first person to be buried in the Cemetery was Mrs Henry Fullgrabe. Indeed she was interred before the cemetery was properly laid out and only on the understanding that if the roads and footpaths happened to cross her grave, she would be exhumed at Mr Fullgrabe’s expense.

This walk highlights 20 of the more significant people in the history of the district who are buried cemetery.
