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. The Schilizzi monument was made in 1872 while the Ralli mausoleum was designed by George Edmund Street in 1888.
