Reflecting on heritage at Mornington Cemetery

Mornington Cemetery, a serene and historical site managed by the Mornington Peninsula Cemetery Trust, serves as a poignant reminder of the Mornington Peninsula’s rich history. Located at 40 Craigie Rd, Mount Martha, this cemetery is more than just a final resting place; it’s a chronicle of the area’s pioneering past.

The cemetery, first surveyed in 1855, has undergone several name changes, from Mt. Martha Cemetery to Moorooduc Cemetery, before settling on its current name. It stands as a repository of history, holding the stories of the district’s pioneers within its grounds.

The pioneers of Mornington

Among its many graves, Mornington Cemetery houses the final resting places of numerous district pioneers, each headstone a narrative of the challenges and triumphs faced by early settlers.

A place of remembrance and respect

Managed by the Mornington Peninsula Cemetery Trust, with offices at 90 Besgrove St, Rosebud, and at the cemetery itself, Mornington Cemetery is attentively maintained, ensuring a dignified and respectful environment for visitors and loved ones.
