Location Information

The cemetery is situated close to both the cruise liner terminal and the Queen's Park sports stadium in St George's. From the Port, follow Melville Street for about one kilometre, and then turn right into River Road, just beyond the large Funeral Society premises on the right hand side. The cemetery is divided into separate lower, middle and upper sections, the former lying to the left of River Road, and the latter two to the right, stretching up Cemetery Hill.

The three Second World War graves are located in a single plot in the lower section of the cemetery, about 20 metres from the entrance close to the left hand boundary wall, which overlooks St George's Bay.

The single First World war grave is located in the central section, and is best reached via the entrance in Cemetery Hill Road opposite the La Qua and Sons funeral society premises. Head towards the palm tree at 1 o'clock to and about 40 metres from the entrance. The standard pattern headstone for Corporal Mercurious is about 5 metres to the right of the palm tree, its view blocked from any distance by the larger memorials surrounding it.

Historical Information

St. George's Cemetery contains one Commonwealth burial of the First World War and three from the Second World War.
