Listing Text

6/142 (East Side)
Melbourne Cemetery
Cemetery chapels. c1860. Rock faced ashlar with ashlar
dressings and double chamfered plinth. Steeply pitched lozenge
patterned grey and green slate roofs with crested ridge tiles,
lapped stone coped gables on moulded kneelers and corbelled
eaves bands. Chapels at right angles to each other with central
tower between. The tower has a full width carriage arch through
it, with a moulded pointed arch on triple clustered shafts
topped by moulded capitals, also with hoodmould and relieving
arch above. Upper stage has a chamfered band to base and
moulded cornice with corner gargoyles to top. East and west
sides have central cusped ogee headed windows with crocketed
hoodmoulds and finials. At this level each corner tapers from
about half way up so the top of the stage is octagonal. Above,
the tower reduces considerably and is topped by an octagonal
turret with gableted louvred lancets to each side and a slim
banded spire above. Chapel attached to south has three 2-light
plate tracery windows to west elevation and stepped buttresses
to either end. Similar east elevation except southern window is
set in a small gabled vestry. South gable wall has a 4-light
geometric tracery window with hoodmould and relieving arch
above. Northern chapel is similar with plate tracery windows to
north, 3-light geometric tracery window to east and a 4-light
cusped intersecting tracery window with roundel to top, to west.
Both chapels have Caernarvon arched doorcases beneath the tower,
each with double doors and decorated spandrels. Interiors of
the chapels are very plain with arched trusses on carved
spandrels and tiled floors.
