Pine Ridge Cemetery

Over the years the record keeping has been sketchy and today we are left with little knowledge of where the early burials were located, and the names of the persons buried there. This is so unfortunate, as all people deserve to be remembered.

The Anglican church had been burned in a rash of arson-related fires many years ago and the Catholic records consisted only of the names of the persons buried there, with no mention of the location of the burial. Today there are accurate records kept at the Municipal Office and burial lots have been surveyed so as to have an organized and orderly layout. This is in sharp contrast to the haphazard placement of burials, as was done for many years.

The By-Law # 97-06 was passed in 1997, which not only set the rules and regulations, but also the rates. Today the rates are being reviewed to reflect the rising costs. At the present, the Cemetery Board does not allow winter burials as there doesn’t seem to be an economical way of doing so in the loose sandy, gravel we have to dig in. The Board is exploring ways to do this that will not only be economical, but safe.
