Wonderful history
Sep. 2020
We visited the cemetery after doing a tour of the gaol to see the mass grave of prisoners, men women and children who died in the Old Beechworth Gaol. The area is marked "Strangers". The Chinese Burning Tours are very interesting.

History Tour

This interesting cemetry is split into different sections, such as the “Pioneer Section", with Dr Henry Green who died four months after his arrival, a victim of typhoid fever.
The Chinese Section of the cemetery is very interesting. Here some 2000 Chinese gold seekers and settlers are buried.
I found the Chinese Burning Towers (1857) very unusual. They were used for burning paper prayers and meals were provided on the altar (1883) for the spirits of the dead.

This is a very interesting and well cared for cemetery with different areas for different religions. There is a large area devoted to the Chinese which is well worth checking out.
It is also a very peaceful place.

A very interesting site made even more spiritual by the smoke from nearby fires. Got some excellent guidance from a local member of the Cemetarry Trust.
