Adelaide Mail (Newspaper) - January 21, 1933, Adelaide, South Australia National Library of Australia neglected Graves at West Terrace overgrown strewn with Rusty tins cemetery rapidly filling new area needed stricter control urged West Terrace cemetery Adelaide where 98,000 people Are buried is nearly full and before Long provision will have to be made either to extend it or open a new cemetery for the City. Many Graves at West Terrace Are in a sadly neglected state. Rank grass grows Over obscuring the Tomb stones while on others there Are heaped ashes Rusty tins and broken Glass jars. The general effect in such places is that of a rubbish Heap rather than a sacred plot in god s acre a suggestion to the government will be made by the Adelaide City Council at its meeting on monday that the control and management of any further acquired property for a Public cemetery should be handed Over to a Board of trustees to prevent a repetition of the unsightly and deplorable conditions now existing at West Terrace Ceme Tery members of the City Council fear that the government contemplates adding _ to the cemetery by taking in a Large portion of the a Rylands that lie to the South of it and abut Anzac Highway on its nor them Side. Strong opposition is Likely to be Given to any move to alienate por Tion of the a Rylands for this purpose. Cars. Willcox Homburg. And Grundy Frith a photographer and a representative of the mail visited the cemetery this 1 week and signs of sad neglect where Graves have been Over run with weeds and broken railings and headstones lie on the ground. Probably in Many instances there Are no surviving relatives of the buried to tend the Graves for records show that the earliest burial was made in 1837, soon after the foundation of South austra Lia. Pathetic sight wild Oats and other grasses have grown profusely this year and Are As High As 5 it. In places. The growth almost bides Many monuments and Here and there it is pathetic to see How relatives have kept Clear a Little Flower decked Mound while weeds Sway High about it. The Clearing of the grass has been a problem for the authorities and fire has been employed in Many instances with damaging effect. Wooden railings and headpieces have been charred and ashes left about in heaps. High grass Over growing Graves nearly obscures Tombstone. I fallen railing and broken Tombstone at West Terrace cemetery Ili at every new interments Are being made on the Western Side of the cemetery on lower ground close to mile end goods Yard. Thl is much lower than the older parts of the cemetery and below the surface the ground is waterlogged. In one grave that had been sunk in readiness for a burial there was 18 in. Of water at the Bottom. Pumps stood nearby and it was said that before a burial the water must be pumped out of the Graves. Sneh a state of affairs cannot be in the interest of Public health it is contended apart from any sentimental objection to the bodies of loved ones resting in water. The thickly populated suburbs of Kes Wick and Hilton Are lower than this por Tion of the cemetery and water from it must eventually percolate through the ground to those suburbs. There Are sections of the cemetery where Graves have been carefully tended and the lawns and Flowers would be a credit to aay Garden. In the soldiers cemetery tablets of uniform design rest on Well kept Green swards in Row after Row. I tuesing the neglected state of parts of the cemetery or. Homburg said that Little could be done to remedy it where relatives were not Here to care for the Graves but 6teps could be taken to guard against a similar state of affairs in the new cemetery that must be opened before Long. It is very upsetting to people who have loved ones buried at West Terrace Ceme Tery and look after their Graves to see adjoining plots neglected he Eaid. In Many instances weeds have been burned round there Well ordered Gravee and the heat of the flames has withered lawns damaged headstones and broken the Glass of artificial Wreath containers. Those who intend to look after the Graves should be provided for in a special Section of the cemetery. A Lump Eum could be paid to the cemetery authorities so that the plots could be maintained in perpetuity. Those not willing to make such arrangements could be provided for in another Section. Wooden Monument charred Token grass was burned off. Charred with Euch provision neglected Graves could not be alongside Well tended ones. To my mind Many people would be willing to spend less on an elaborate Tombstone if they were Able to devote the Money saved to maintenance under such scheme. There is Ako much to be said for a suggestion that there should be a uniformity of Graves and headstones such As exists in the soldiers cemetery. The Upkeep would be greatly simplified under such a system which does not Call for individual railings around plots see you again ? you will have lots 6 fun ? and no regrets. Economical touring a.
