Bolton Street Cemetery

This is Wellington’s earliest cemetery, opened in 1840 and closed fifty years later in the 1890s. In 1978 the name “Bolton Street Memorial Park” was adopted to emphasise the area’s heritage and landscape qualities, but in 2014 the Wellington City Council returned to the original name “Bolton Street Cemetery”.
In the period between 1978 and 2014, the cemetery was known as "Bolton Street Memorial Park".

All sorted Lianne. I pride myself on accuracy, and I don't know how an "n" got into the surname.

Hi Neil, the notable interment link is incorrect (and spelling) for Richard John Seddon.
