Description

The graveyard at St Peter's is the final resting place for many notable Canterbury personalities. When the church was consecrated in 1858, the graveyard was also consecrated for burial according to Christian traditions. In 1960 the graveyard was tidied and reorganised with the consent of the relatives of those buried there. The graves were planted over with grass to give the impression of a lawn, and the ornate iron railings surrounding some of the graves were removed. Early photos show what the graveyard would have looked like before this time. Some of the people who came to rest in the graveyard at St Peter’s include: Sibylla Emily Maude “Nurse Maude” John Ballantyne Sir Charles Bowen William Moorhouse Archbishop West-Watson John Shand Edward Seager Sir Henry & Lady Wigram
