Family Stories from Mays Hill Cemetery
Come along and join our tour of the historic Mays Hill Cemetery and hear Judith Dunn regale you with some interesting stories of just a few of the many families interred within. The cemetery dates back to the early 1840's and there are many tales to be told of our early pioneering families.
The Friends of Mays Hill invite you to participate in a tour of the historic Mays Hill Cemetery as part of the National Trust’s Australian Heritage Festival.
Hear interesting stories about some of the families interred within – as only Judith Dunn can tell them!
Have a chat with some of our volunteers who will be on hand to answer any queries about the Cemetery or the group.
The Friends of Mays Hill Cemetery work tirelessly to raise money for restoration works within the cemetery, with hundreds of headstones having been restored since the group’s formation in 1995.
The Friends of Mays Hill Cemetery have also done research on most of the people interred in the cemetery and can assist members of the public with family history research enquiries. The Friends have published a number of books with short stories on many of the ‘residents’ and these will be available for purchase on the day.
After the tour, light refreshments will be served in the park at the front of the cemetery.
