The East Perth Cemetery was established as the main burial ground for the Swan River Colony in 1829 and is one of the few remaining original burial grounds in Australia. The cemetery complex on Bronte Street also houses St Bartholomew’s Church, which served as a burial chapel, and a parish church for nearby residents during the 1800s and 1900s. The last burial at the East Perth Cemetery was in 1919.
