Port Albert - Port Albert Anglican Cemetery

Port Albert Anglican Cemetery is nicely taken care of, and easy to access. There are about 80 white wooden crosses with no names.

These headstones were read, recorded and transcribed by ARLENE BENNETT, June 2001. While I have endeavored to be as correct as humanly possible, there may be typographical errors. This is only a partial listing.
