NOTES: Originally known as the South Metropolitan Cemetery, this 40-acre cemetery was consecrated in 1837. William Tite, who was the architect for the development company, was responsible for the landscaping and the design of some of the monuments. This Doric tetrastyle temple was built c. 1872 to commemorate Augustus Ralli, and its design is attributed to John Olrid Scott.
