The cemetery board for Kinburn recorded minutes from 1857 to 1957. During the first meeting, a committee was formed to obtain funds and purchase a site for a graveyard in Kinburn..They were instructed to purchase half an acre of land which would be open to anyone, “without regard to creed, colour or religion.” Space was to be set aside for strangers and people of “indigent circumstances.” Subscribers would be given first choice of the lots. The church closed in 1967. In 1968 the cemetery council cleaned up the site and placed several large monuments, as well as a number of the older flat, white gravestones in a cement platform.
