Cemetery
“Waddington's cemetery was initially called the East Malvern Cemetery, but in 1880 the trust changed its name to Waddington Cemetery Trust. The first burial in Waddington Cemetery took place in 1882, however the earliest gravestone still standing (alone at the back of the cemetery) is dated 1883. The oak trees on the site were planted from acorns brought back by soldiers from Gallipolli, WWI.”
