Cornelian Bay Cemetery, Hobart, Tasmania

Shortly after Sullivans Cove (Hobart) was settled in 1804 the area of land that was to become Cornelian Bay Cemetery became the Government Farm that supplied produce to the settlement. By 1843 the cemeteries around the Hobart township had become public health hazards and the site was suggested as a replacement. It wasn't, however, until 1872 that the cemetery opened and the first burial was that of 12 year old Bridget Ryan. Today the cemetery covers about 80 acres and there have been over 100,000 burials there.

We are in the process of photographing the graves and headstones in the cemetery in a similar fashion to our other Headstones of Tasmania CDs. Each grave has a minimum of 2 photographs recorded with multiple photographs for old, worn and hard to read headstones.

Below are details of our first 2 CDs and Data DVDs, and below this are details of the files of each section of the cemetery that are able to be downloaded for a small fee.

Downloadable Files of the Cornelian Bay Cemetery.

Following suggestions from our customers we are including Lite Versions of each file on our CDs and Data DVDs that are downloadable as .zip files for a small fee. Compared to the CD and Data DVD files, much less information is included with only 2 images of each grave and no secondary plaques, unreadable or unnamed graves featured. The images are also much smaller allowing for smaller files and quicker downloads.

Regardless of the above some of the files are still over 30 MB in size and so a fast internet connection is recommended. The size of each file is included in each description.

When you click on the link to download a file you will be taken to the PayPal site to enter your payment details.
