Lutwyche Cemetery is on a busy highway and urban development has spread far beyond the suburb and it is still an important part of the community. Local people use the area as a short cut to back streets; people walk their dogs and visitors place flowers on graves, particularly on special occasions such as ANZAC Day, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Many appreciate that a complex history lies in Lutwyche.
