Williamsford-Rosebery Cemetery
West Coast Council, Tasmania, Australia

Contributed by Marie Toth, Feb 13, 2004, last edited Mar 19, 2007 [tollrose@iprimus.com.au]. Total records = 218.

The cemetery is located by driving south from Rosebery (only one road) for approx 2km, then taking the turn signposted to Williamsford and Montezuma Falls, About 1km further along that road, the cemetery is found on the right hand side, Rosebery (and the now abandoned town of Williamsford)

Both of these towns have been mining towns, hence the unusually high number of accidents shown in the listing.

Fuller details of the markers and relationships shown on them is available on my personal website, which can be found here.

I recorded all of the visible markers myself, and about half a dozen were obtained from the council records, and three were given to me verbally by relatives visiting recent burial sites. This is complete up to 4th Feb 2004.
