Hamilton is a city of approximately 9,500 residents situated in the southwest of Victoria, at the intersection of the Glenelg and Henty Highways.
Hamilton is currently served by three cemeteries, two public cemeteries and one private Lutheran cemetery.
This web site has been produced to represent the two public cemeteries in Hamilton.
The oldest cemetery, located at 209 Coleraine Road, was established in 1852, and is still in use today. In February 1970 the second cemetery, a lawn cemetery, was opened in Cavendish Road.
One of the characteristics of the two cemeteries is that they both retain their original character. The older Hamilton General Cemetery is largely unspoilt with its grand monuments and old style graves including many unmarked graves.
Whilst the newer Hamilton Lawn Cemetery takes on a more modern, landscaped appearance that only a lawn cemetery can achieve.
