New Listing – Cust/West Eyreton Cemetery

Dear Readers,

The work at both Cust cemeteries has now been completed.

Grave of George Clegg Gardner

Cust’s Anglican Cemetery (Tippings Road) was finished last year and the listings can be found here.

The Cust/West Eyreton Cemetery, the larger of the two, has now been fully photographed and listings are being added daily. Thanks to my parents and husband for helping me out with this cemetery, it saved on painkillers!

Don’t forget, to learn more about the history of Cust and those who lived and died there you can visit or contact the Cust Museum, open 2pm – 4pm on Sundays or by arrangement.

Happy Hunting!

A recent B.A. Honours (First Class) graduate of the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, I'm currently studying for my M.A. (Hist). My focus is on social history, particularly the late-Victorian colonial social environment and those often-overlooked characters that lurked among settlers - the remittance men, swaggers, misfits, and wannabes.
