Port Pirie Cemetery MapA Port Pirie Cemetery Map is available by clicking here
Using the search tools above, search for the grave you are looking to visit, this will give you a section, lot and grave number in the comments section. Note that "Rose Garden" "Niche Wall" "Lawn Cemetery" and "War Graves" are all sections for this purpose.
Consult with the colour key in the bottom right corner of the map. This will help you find the section you need to look in. For example, "CP" (Common Protestant) is a pale blue.
In this example, there are two pale blue colours on the map, one for Common Protestant, one for the Catholic Reserve. Each plot is marked with the initials to help ensure you are looking in the correct section.
The lots are numbered individually, with batch numbers located with the Initials marking. For example, looking at the Common Protestant section, we can see that “CP 121-240” is located on the left hand side of the section.
The small numbers with white background in the centre of the lots are the lot numbers. Each section also has even smaller numbers along the top and bottom rows of lots. These numbers show how the graves are ordered in each lot.
The Cemeteries mapping and search funtions are works in progress. If a grave search returns a result that you cannot locate on the map, please contact the Port Pirie Regional Council
