I thought these headstones had been transcribed on another web site but I can’t find any (someone must have somewhere??). So if you want a transcription and the headstone is visible in one of these photos, ask in the comments. I didn’t take them with the intention of transcribing them but I might be able to work them out 🙂 These are the only photos I have though, so if it’s not below, I can’t help.

The Church of Christ at Geeveston was opened on 17 June 1906. The new chapel was described as a “neat wooden structure, splendidly situated, and seated to accommodate about 200 people”.
By the 1950s the church numbers were dwindling.
In 1978 it amalgamated with the local Congregational Church to become the Geeveston Community Church (the local Congregational Church had decided not to be part of the Uniting Church of Australia).

Opened 1840s. Replaced by current St Marks in 1859.
On Thursday the Bishop left for Deloraine, accompanied as before by the Rural Dean, C. Meredith, Esq., J. P., and other inhabitants of Port Sorell. His Lordship had a narrow escape of meeting the bushrangers, as the man sent as a guide was stopped by two armed men, who stripped and otherwise ill treated him. On Friday the Bishop assisted by the Rural Dean, the Rev. John Bishton &c, laid the foundation of the Church and School house at Deloraine. The contractor has agreed to complete this building within three months.
