|Perhaps the children's playground was built up, rather than dug down.|

As the conversion from cemetery to public park progressed, descendents were encouraged to make decisions about the remains of their ancestors. Very few people were exhumed and moved elsewhere. I will tell you about one such tomorrow on Taphophile Tragics. All the headstones were removed. Some were used to 'adjust' the surface of the park. Some were used in retaining walls. There is none left in situ. About 30 headstones were removed to Camperdown Cemetery. Others were used as historic markers where requested. The headstones of two ex-ministers were removed to St Barnabas' Church on Broadway. However, this is just the headstones. The vast majority of bodies remain interred beneath the rolling green of the park.
|The war memorial was moved from elsewhere in Leichhardt to its prominent position within the park.|
