The land cost 3.5s.0d per acre. The church records show that the first person to be buried at the Cemetery was 12 year old Brian Wilson who died as the result of an accident 10th October 1871.
During the 1940s fire swept through the cemetery destroying the wooden crosses. The last burial was James McMaster 22 June 1956.
