Historically, some of the earliest recorded graves pre-date 1880, suggesting this area had been an unofficial burial ground for early European settlers. The cemetery is located on Queen Street, which was the original route to the earliest wharf, located on the Broadwater at Southport.
A male pensioner known as Joab who was killed by lightning was buried in 1878.
