Cypress Street Cemetery

The Cypress Street Burial ground lay neglected for many years until the Launceston City Council reclaimed the ground for a park. The park was made available to the Broadland House School for recreational use in 1953. An estimated 30,000 people were buried there, including 4 First Fleeters: Olivia (Gascoigne) Lucas, William Blackhall, Thomas Sparks and Elizabeth (Haywood) Lowe.
