Information

Erected in 1886, victims of accidents along the River were taken here by Paddle steamer prior to burial. The cemetery is located off the Burra Road, which was established in 1889, and taken over by council in 1895. It is believed that the first person to be interned at the cemetery was a Royal Navy Surveyor, named Harvey, who speculated while assisting in the preparation of the site, as to who would be the first person to be buried there. Tragically, he died by drowning the next day and was the first resident of the Morgan Cemetery.
