If you could spare a few dollars to help with the running costs of this website would be very much appreciated.

Thank you from Gravesites of Tasmania.

Church History

Because of dwindling church numbers
and rising costs such as public liability etc many of our churches are now being
sold and passing into private hands. This list will be added to as more
information comes to hand – if you the reader have any information or photos
that can be added we would be pleased to hear from you.

Information has been
gathered from a variety of sources some of which are listed below.
