The wall was erected as a tribute to the early settlers who were interred in the original cemetery from 1869 until its closure in 1912. 

The headstones in the wall are those that could be salvaged. The Sexton's Hut, which is adjacent to the wall, undertook improvement works as part of the Memorial Wall Project.
