The Newington Cemetery is NOT a public cemetery,
it is on PRIVATE PROPERTY.
Under no circumstances should anyone attempt to enter the property - please respect the owners AND the horses which occupy this area.
The following is a copy of a document on the Newington Cemetery produced for various authories by Susie Zada, Bellarine Historical Society, April 1997.
This document was produced in April 1997 after more than twelve months of research into the area of Ocean Grove and Newington, and immediately following the uncovering of the last crucial piece in the jigsaw puzzle of the "Newington Cemetery".
The research is not complete, however it was felt that it was important to document the information already unearthed (no pun intended!) with the hope that further details would come to light as more people learn of our work to date.
It was also important to record these details and lodge them with appropriate organisations and authorities to ensure that no-one had to repeat the work we had already done.
