Gretna St Marys Anglican



Consecrated June 1 1848 by Bishop Nixon on land donated by Edward Terry of “Askrigg”

The Church is built of stone with cedar furnishing and was financed by donations from the congregation.

A feature of the church is its window erected in memory of the late John Walker of “Clarendon” whose wife was organist for the church for 50 years.

Widely known as The Woolpack Church” because of its proximity to the hotel of the same name which was the scene of an encounter between bushranger Martin Cash and the local police

Headstones in this cemetery were photographed 10th August 2008

Thankyou Mark Pilkington for the following information

I have visited the graveyard and can confirm the headstone you list as "Unknown, Eliza" is Eliza Robinson, who died 26 Nov 1860, the  wife of William Robinson who is also buried at the same site, and adjacent. You photo linked below allows faint reading of those details on the image.

Of interest my great great grandmother Sarah Robinson and her husband John Robinson died in the same month August 1869, and I suspect either Sarah is in an un-marked grave at Gretna, or is buried with John in the same grave, but not listed on his Headstone. Sarah was the mother of William James Pilkington, also buried at Gretna, with his wife Louisa.

Thankyou to Lyn for the following information
