Kirwee – St George’s Church and Cemetery

Newspaper snippet from the Star, 10th May 1883 (Courtesy Papers Past)

*** COMPLETE ***

On the 3rd January 1882, at a meeting of local officials, it was decided that “taking into consideration the increasing population of Kirwee, and the liberal offer of Capt. Tosswill of a very suitable site, it is desirable that steps should be taken towards the erection of a Church at Kirwee“.   (Source)

On the 10th November, 1882, the tender of a Mr. Jamieson was accepted to build the church for the sum of £246 and, as per the newspaper article above, St George’s Church and the burial grounds were consecrated on the 15th May, 1883.

St George’s Anglican Church, Kirwee, Canterbury, New Zealand
