Hotspur Cemetery
Crawford (Smoky) River, S-W Victoria, Australia
Glenelg & Wannon Region, South West Victoria, Australia
The Hotspur Cemetery is situated on a small rise on the northern bank of and overlooking the Crawford River, north of Portland in south west Victoria, Australia. As with many small community cemeteries it has a scattering of headstones, some fenced but many with graves unmarked, and many unknown burials. The early burial records have long since disappeared, perhaps in one of the major fires which swept the district on a number of occasions.
