Notes from Australian Cemeteries Index:

"Wollongong Old Catholic Cemetery was located at the South Eastern end of Crown Street Wollongong until c.1970s when the site was converted to the "Andrew Lysaght Park". In December 1998, the Foreshore Plaza was opened on what was a part of the old Cemetery. According to the dates at NSW BDM, the earliest burials at the Cemetery were recorded in 1805 and burials continued until that of Ellen Lysaght in May 1914. Wayne Hill has contributed his images and researched data that he completed in June 2004. He says: "The State Government has introduced legislation in Parliament to allow a development to proceed on the old Roman Catholic Cemetery site, next to the Wollongong Entertainment Centre. The Wollongong Amendment Bill will effectively add the land to an area managed by the Wollongong Sports ground Trust. The Member for Wollongong, Colin Markham, says the land will be used to build piers for a new grandstand at WIN Stadium and to expand a restaurant in the entertainment centre. Mr Markham says it is unlikely any human remains will be disturbed. "Typescript extracted from 'Register of the Names of and other relevant information in respect of persons buried (in the) Old Roman Catholic Cemetery, Crown Street, Wollongong, CGS 8311 (Kingswood 8/2020)'. The volume includes details of burials from 1805 to 1914, in the Catholic Cemetery, and is a copy from four foolscap pages of names from the Official Register. It includes details concerning the name of person interred, abode, when buried, age, birthplace, profession and by whom burial ceremony was performed. Some headstones have survived but unfortunately many have been lost or did not exist." A memorial wall has been erected on the site which lists in brief the names and ages of those persons known to have been buried in the original cemetery. Ten surviving headstones have been mounted on the wall and the substantial Lysaght monument, which is seen in both old and modern views of the site above, has been re-erected in front of the wall. Wayne's images may be viewed from at list of inscriptions for this cemetery."
