The "Lyttelton Times" on 12th June 1852 reported - "The remains of the unfortunate man Cone who was killed on the Bridle Path were deposited in the cemetery here on Monday afternoon. He had been a quiet, good humoured man and having been much respected, his body was followed to the grave by many who had known him."
William Cone was buried in the Barbadoes Street Cemetery on the 7th of June 1852 in what was termed the Plantation Plot. William was the 20th person buried at Barbadoes cemetery which had no cemetery plan and William's unmarked grave was located by descendant Ron Cone and a plaque was erected in his memory.
