Thomastown Lutheran Cemetery
(Westgarthtown Cemetery)
Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Greensborough Lutheran Church
33 Oldstead Rd
Greensborough, Victoria 3088 AU

Contributed by Ronald L. Weiher, Apr 05, 2002 [ronweiher@hotmail.com]. Total records = 131.

It is located in the Thomastown area of the City of Whittlesea, a suburb on the northern fringe of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. The Greater Melbourne Melway map grid reference is 8 H5. The entrance to the cemetery is in Rosedale Drive. The nearest cross street is Gardenia Road.

A local community of German immigrants established this cemetery. They began arriving in this particular part of Australia in the 1850s. The cemetery was in use by 1850, as a child was reportedly buried in that year. The oldest burial found is 1852. The oldest year of birth in this record is 1788. The most recent death is 2001.

This cemetery is in poor condition and is not well maintained. A number of headstones have been vandalized. The cemetery is owned by the City of Whittlesea (Ferres Blvd, South Morang, Victoria 3752), the cemetery is managed by the local Lutheran Church.

This record was compiled from tombstones found in the cemetery. It has been augmented in a few instances by names from a list of burials found in the local library. The latter contains no authorship or publication data; it is simply entitled, ''Westgarthtown Cemetery Thomastown".

The list is divided into "Lutheran Section" and "Methodist Section". The latter is actually a separate cemetery a few blocks away. However, most of the names from the "Lutheran Section" were found in the Thomastown Lutheran Cemetery, the one being documented here. Because of this the compiler assumes that the few names from the list not confirmed by tombstones are nevertheless burials in the Lutheran Cemetery. These names contain an asterisk * at the end of the entry.

The record contains all visible burials. I recorded the information during February 2002. Please contact me if you have any questions or added information.
