Appraisal

A picturesque graveyard occupying a prominent sloping site overlooking the centre of Thomastown, thereby forming an appealing landmark in the locality. A vast collection of markers displaying high quality craftsmanship identifies the artistic design value of the site. Together with the adjacent tower (12317046/KK-28-17-46) the graveyard remains of additional importance as a reminder of a long-standing ecclesiastical presence in the area.
