Randwick General Cemetery was dedicated in 1873 for burials of all denominations, after a local dispute saw land dedicated in the heart of Randwick for a general cemetery, earmarked for Anglican burials only, at the instigation of Simeon Pearce, first Mayor of Randwick and devout protestant.
This land encompassed what we now know as St Jude's Cemetery and Alison Park, that portion reverted to parkland in 1864.
The first burial at Randwick General Cemetery occurred 10 September 1874. This cemetery was originally known as Long Bay Cemetery after the road. The road was renamed after the sinking of the MV Malabar in 1931.
Main Entrance - Malabar Rd (the full eastern side of Randwick General Cemetery is adjacent to the stretch of Malabar Rd). There are (2) other ways to get to Randwick General Cemetery (on the western side entrance) Moverley Rd, and Elphinstone Rd. The Locality of Randwick General Cemetery is at South Coogee, Randwick City, New South Wales, Australia (2034).
