Glebe Cemetery

Overview

This Church of England burial ground is the oldest cemetery in the Hunter Valley and is listed on the NSW State Heritage Register.

The cemetery’s earliest recorded burial is in 1828, although earlier unmarked graves are likely. The cemetery remained in use until the turn of the century and is the resting place of Maitland’s renowned, soldiers, convicts, Protestants and Catholics. It is also suspected that famous architect Francis Greenway is buried in the cemetery.

Glebe Cemetery is surrounded by an open green field, and visitors need to walk down a grassy slope and across a quaint wooden bridge to find the array of headstones.

The adjacent quarry, established by 1835, provided stone for the first St Peter’s Church, the Catholic Chapel, private dwellings and headstones for the cemetery.
