Located this information about this old cemetery, now Queen Victoria Market site.
There is a Microfiche of Alphabetical Record of burials at PROV, covering the era, 1866 -1917.
Exhumation of bodies began in 1920. Only marked graves were exhumed. 525 were identified. 70 significant memorials were identified and relocated to the Fawkner Park Old Pioneer Section. Other bodies were reinterred at cemeteies around Melbourne.
No burial records exist prior to 1866, as records were destroyed in a fire at the gatekeepers lodge in 1865.
