The Examiner via the Courier, 8 April 1859
Graves are behind the church. I don’t know of any photos or transcriptions of the headstones online.
I therefore resectfully inform your lordship that the grave-yard of Deloraine Church Property is now in the possession of a licensed victualler, Mr. J. Thomas, of the “Bush Inn,” of this town, who has erected a pigsty, skittle-ground, and timber-yard thereon, in addition to depasturing his cattle on the sacred resting place of the departed.
