Statement of significance:

The Old Goulburn Cemetery, Mortis Street, has a high strategic and cultural heritage value. Some of the monuments have individual heritage significance for their historical, technical and creative elements. The cemetery is important in representing both the social and aesthetic elements of a community. It is a commemorative landscape of memory with the graves and monuments important as individual sites of family remembrance. They demonstrate many aspects of Goulburn’s community heritage including the development of the city and the genealogical and religious make up of the community. Botanical elements of cemetery’s design and technical and artistic representation in ironwork and monumental mason’s skills are integral components.
