Greenwood Cemetery will be temporarily closed to the public, including vehicles and pedestrians Wednesday, May 31, 2023, from approximately 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. for Cemetery Staff to perform a disinterment. 

The City has received the necessary approvals to undertake this work, and staff from Public Health will be on site.

The Cemetery will be fully open again to the public following the planned closure.

Greenwood Cemetery has been an important cultural landmark and repository of the City’s history since its inception in April 1858. The property encompasses 43 acres.

Greenwood Cemetery is the final resting place of Victoria Cross recipients Billy Bishop, David Currie and Tommy Holmes. It is the only cemetery outside of England where three Victoria Cross winners are laid to rest.
