St Mary's Cemetery

The St Mary's Cemetery is probably the oldest formal cemetery in Port Elizabeth and can be found close to the city centre. It is situated near the mouth of the Baakens River on the banks of what used to be the fresh water lagoon after which Algoa Bay was named. I did a post in The Firefly Photo Files a little while ago with some more pictures of the cemetery.

  2. Hi, was wondering if you are ever back at St Mary's Cemetery if you could take a photograph for me of one of my ancestor's resting places. The location is - Plot: CD/M4 - the monument is for a M Wissing.
