There is a lodge at each entrance to the cemetery from Queens Road - the southern lodge for the cemetery sexton, the northern lodge for the cemetery registrar. The registrarís lodge also contained the cemetery office which was fitted with a large safe for the registers and deed books. When the cemetery committee advertised for a registrar in May 1884 there were 99 applicants for the position.
