Information:

The First Angaston Cemetery was situated at 8 Hannay Crescent Angaston, South Australia, and was in use from 1847 to 1869. Some of the graves were moved to the new Angaston Cemetery, so there will be duplications of inscriptions between the two. The First Angaston Cemetery has it's own page at https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Space:Angaston_First_Cemetery&public=1
