St. Stephen's Church, Newtown, Thursday October 6th 2005.
In the back streets of Newtown stands this gothic style church built in 1874. In it's grounds is Camperdown cemetery. This is an historic cemetery with some famous residents as well as the many humble, unknown, unremembered people whose names are not written in the books of history, but in the book of life.
Many of the cemetery's residents have links with the sea, through a career in the navy, shipbuilding, sinking of ships or accidental drowning in the harbour.
I have set up a special gallery here that shows a few of the graves with a little of the history behind them.
