Full description

Lovie, J., Exwick Cemetery (Un-published). SDV357054.

Quite a late cemetery (1875), but a nice typical burial board layout with a pair of chapels. A fine avenue of cypresses. The extension to the west is of no interest and should not be included.

Ordnance Survey, 1880-1899, First Edition Ordnance 25 inch map (Cartographic). SDV336179.

The late 19th century cemetery occupied only the small southern part of the large L-shaped area which now exists. It contained a lodge and two mortuary chapels.

Exwick Cemetery was opened in 1877. It has a distinctive sloping aspect and the top of the cemetery has views across the city. The first burial was that of Elizabeth Curry who died at the age of 29. The cemetery also contains the grave of the Victoria Cross holder, George Hollis, who died in 1879 and Frank Shooter, the Hero of the Exe who died in 1917.
