Find A Grave

Cheltenham Pioneer Cemetery was the first general cemetery established in Melbourne’s bayside area and, until 1917 was known as the Mordialloc and South Moorabbin General Cemetery. The cemetery opened for interments on 3 October 1864, and the first burial of John Fullerton Hunter occurred on 27 March 1865.

It has had many notable interments over the years, including the district's mayors, pioneer graziers, artists, musicians, politicians and war veterans.

In 1915 the original section of the office was built to the design of local architect Solon A. Peck and in the 1920s the cemetery was improved by the construction of a brick wall and gates, and the shelter house pavilion.

The cemetery reached its capacity in the late 1920s, and a new burial ground, Cheltenham Memorial Park, was established nearby.
