Goldenbridge cemetery

Set on just two acres of land Goldenbridge incorporates many of the classical features that were to dominate the 19th century. Its delineated pathways and high walls create an oasis of tranquility in what is now the heart of a busy suburb.

History

Goldenbridge is a 19th century ‘garden’ cemetery. After the passing of the 'Act of Easement of Burial Bills' in 1824 a committee was established to administer the proposed cemetery. The cemetery was purchased in 1828 and the first burial took place on the 15th October of that year.

Unlike churchyards, garden cemeteries were independent of a parish church and were located outside the city in what were then quiet suburbs. Because of this these cemeteries became known as ’garden cemeteries'.
