Address: Zipfs Road, Alberton 4207 QLD
Alberton Cemetery appears to have been established originally as a Lutheran cemetery and includes a monument to the first Lutheran Church in the area that was erected in 1869. The inscriptions extant date from 1866 and memorialise many of the early German immigrants to this district.
Peter Arthur visited and photographed the cemetery in July 2009. He found the tree bordered grounds in excellent condition and commented that the site was neat, clean and well maintained by the Gold Coast City Council. He found no evidence of vandalism. Although some of the older stones are weathered and now difficult to read, they are generally lichen free and legible. There are many unmarked graves.
Peter's images may be accessed via the list of inscriptions for this cemetery. In compiling that list, reference was made to the Queensland indices of births, deaths and marriages for additional information.
