Ever since Colonel William Light laid out the City of Adelaide in 1837, West Terrace Cemetery has served the resting place of pioneers, politicians, war heroes, suffragettes and ratbags alike. Today, this State Heritage Listed landmark is home to more than 150,000 souls and rich stories about their amazing lives.


Cheltenham Cemetery Expired Sites 2019

When the lives of those living and working within the western suburbs of metropolitan Adelaide are touched by death they have inevitably sought to create a lasting memorial at Cheltenham Cemetery. This community cemetery continues to provide a place to remember and be remembered, as it has for more than a century.

While the Adelaide Cemeteries Authority seeks to preserve as much of the cemetery’s heritage value as it can, it must balance this with the need to make available space for future generations to be interred.
