St Saviours Cathedral is looking better than ever.
There's a newly refurbished fence completed by local painter Greg O'Neill to welcome visitors, as well as a new cemetery map along with a legend at the entrance, allowing them to find any tombstone easily.
All the work was organised by gardening group Cemetery Friends that aim to improve the cemetery's appearance and halt deterioration by neglect.
They also research people interred and provide information to repair deteriorating graves.
Heather West from Cemetery Friends said they would share the map and legend with others.
"We have given digital copies of the map and legend, with names and location coordinates, to Goulburn Mulwaree librarians in the local studies section and will also share with the Visitors Information Centre and History Goulburn," Ms West said.
Goulburn Mulwaree Council mayor Bob Kirk unveiled the new features of the cemetery on Saturday, March 20 which saw over 40 guests.
He said that plenty of important people from Goulburn were buried at the cemetery and thanked the Cemetery Friends for all their efforts.
There was an apple relish sale on the day, made out of apples from the two apple trees in the cemetery.
The funds went towards the poisoning of the weeds.
Ms West said it was important to note that not all graves were on the map.
"Family researchers need to be aware that this map is only able to record names on graves which still have legible headstones," Ms West said.
"Many more people are buried in the cemetery, but unfortunately, church records of plot locations and the wooden headstones or crosses have not survived.
"In the future, we plan to produce an additional sign listing many of these names, sourced from death registers, but even then, it may not be complete."
In the meantime, Cemetery Friends are calling out for anyone with ancestors buried in the cemeteries to reach out so people can be contacted to share their research and participate in discussions if graves are at risk of serious deterioration.
