Southern General Cemetery
Dunedin, Otago Province, New Zealand

The Southern Cemetery in Dunedin, as the name implies, is at the southern end of the City. It is one of the oldest in the city and is in a very attractive location. The cemetery lies facing to the north-east on a hill side. The graves are in their rows as is the norm, but surrounded and interspersed by old mature trees. It is composed of several divisions, perhaps the largest is the Southern General Cemetery. Standing at the higher side, one has a quiet view down the Otago Harbour, up which the early settlers arrived in the sailing ships from the time the town was developed in 1848, [DP]
