The Carisbrook Cemetery was established in 1858 to replace the nearby Bald Hill Cemetery (early 1850s), which had proved unsatisfactory. There was some overlap of usage between the two cemeteries. 

The cemetery is decorated with a collection of pretty trees and offers a quiet, peaceful setting surrounded by farmland.

The first official cemetery was on Bald Hill but proved unsatisfactory. There was some overlap of the usage of the two cemeteries.

Carisbrook / Bald Hill Cemetery


The old Carisbrook / Bald Hill Cemetery was established in the early 1850's and is just a few minutes drive from Carisbrook Victoria. 

The Bald Hill Cemetery was replaced in 1858 by this cemetery in Carisbrook, which is still in use today. There was some overlap of the usage of the two cemeteries.


The Carisbrook / Bald Hill Cemetery is all farmland now, and no trace of the old cemetery remains except for a monument which was erected in 1997. The monument includes a list of the people who are buried there and includes their age, date of death, and full names.
