I don’t seem to be able to find any transcriptions of the headstones online.
Headstones are around the the chapel. Transcriptions to come. Or go here.
The headstones are in a yard behind the church. Transcriptions and photos of the headstones can be found at Headstones from Cemeteries of Tasmania.

Location on Google Maps. Not sure when this cemetery was in the use. The State Library ‘s guide to cemetery records says “1846?” for the year it opened. Possibly land was obtained at the same time the synagogue was built. The known burials date from 1858-1893.
