Friends of St Kilda Cemetery

The Friends of St Kilda Cemetery are a not-for-profit community group working actively with Southern Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust, the administrators of St Kilda Cemetery.

What We Do

The Friends exist to promote the conservation and appreciation of St Kilda Cemetery.

We do this by:
• Running regular tours of the cemetery. In addition to running tours which focus on the notable burials of the cemetery, we also run special themed tours and visits to other cemeteries.
• Publishing regular newsletters and other materials.
• Speaking to schools, community groups and kindred organisations.
• Providing information to researchers and the general public about people buried within the cemetery.

The Friends are pleased to share the information that we hold and welcome information that you may hold on people buried within the cemetery.

Please note that St Kilda Cemetery is managed by The Southern Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust.
