Description

The first burial in Kirwee Public Cemetery was in 1879.\n\nAt that time the cemetery was laid out in four sections – Episcopalian, Catholic and two other denominations.\n\nToday just three denominations are mapped – Anglican, Non-Conformist and Presbyterian.\n\nSince its opening, the cemetery has shrunk in size. Some of the land was sectioned off for grazing c. 1896 because so few burials took that place no funds were being received.\n\nMalvern County Council took over the maintenance of Kirwee Public Cemetery in 1921 and it is now under the control of Selwyn District Council.\n\nEven today the cemetery, the entrance of which is found off Hoskyns Road in Kirwee (a gravel track), houses few stones.
